When four writers took to the road on a reading tour to talk about their relationship with their fathers they were unprepared for the level of emotional engagement that poured from the audience. Telling stories about fathers unlocked a deep seam of hidden feelings and forgotten memories, proving that there is perhaps no man with more significance in our life than our own father. Here, four sons reveal the complex bonds that exist between themselves and their very different fathers also considering their own roles as fathers and father figures. These tender and heart warming tales mix fact with fiction and provide a perfect backdrop to reflect on this most important relationship.
