The editor who is an author in her own right, has created an anthology of twenty-four writers who remember their fathers.  Alice Munro, Jane Smiley, Ann Hood, Jayne Anne Phillips, Jill McCorkle, Bobbie Ann Mason and Maxine Hong Kingston are among those writing personal essays for this collection.

It is fascinating to read how the fathers, either with their presence or their absence, shaped the lives of these award-winning authors when they were young women and influenced their writing endeavors. The photographs which include a current image of the writer as well as a girlhood picture with her father are particularly poignant.
