You’re a man—but where do you learn to be a father? From women. Yes, women. At least if you’re raising daughters.
Author Kevin Renner found himself at mid-life with more questions than answers while parenting two pre-teen daughters. So he spent a year interviewing 50 women from around the world and across seven decades to learn the many ways in which their fathers—good, bad, and in-between—had affected their lives.
Homeless women, the unemployed, and sex workers. A state supreme court justice, executives, and world class athletes. Straight, lesbian, and transgender. These women shared their life stories, their broken hearts, and their gratitude in what has become a fresh and compelling look at fathers and daughters.
“In Search of Fatherhood: Daughters Praising, Speaking Up, Talking Back” brings together their stories…and his.
“If you read one book about fathers and daughters, read this one.”
