FATHER- SON RELATIONSHIPS GONE TO THE DOGS! (03/22/2012)
BOOK ALERT! JUST UNLEASHED!
THE GOOD FATHER by Noah Hawley was released this month. It's an interesting and thoughtful book and my second father-criminal son theme. I recently read DEFENDING JACOB by William Landay which is more of a courtroom drama, again with a father-son interaction.
In THE GOOD FATHER, the father of a man who assassinates a presidential candidate tries to make sense of his son's crime.
Believe it or not, the book is a mystery, but most importantly tells a poignant story of the relationship between a father and the boy he left behind in his first, failed marriage.
Reviewers called it "an intense psychological novel that will haunt readers for a long time"
Put this book on your To Be Read list. A definite page-turner, "a moving literary novel."
