Tony Bradman has gathered together a collection of twelve excellent brand-new stories exploring the many different roles dads can play in their sonsâ€™ lives and the complicated reactions to them. Farrukh Dhondy captures the terrible moment a son sees his fatherâ€™s vulnerability in Beri Beri and others too look at the painful moment when a son realizes his fatherâ€™s weaknesses.
