Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Nobody's Father is a timely collection of poignant and honest essays that explores the international trend which is changing the conventional face of fatherhood. The contributors write of why so many men, from all walks of life and all continents, have chosen to forgo the traditional role of father.While some writers admit they are haunted by feelings of failure to live up to their own fathers' expectations and to carry on the family name, others admit to knowing from an early age that parenthood was not for them and are content with the alternative lives they lead. The contributors are gay and straight, young and old. They are writers and artists, teachers and priests. They are doting uncles and favorite babysitters, each one redefining the role of father. Published as a sequel to the celebrated, Nobody's Mother, Nobody's Father is essential reading for the 21st century.

After the unparalleled, exceptional precedent of Nobody's Mother, a series of essays by women without children, I was unfortunately disappointed by Nobody's Father. I found the voices of the childless/childfree men in this volume to be without conviction, weak, and superficial. I had high expectations and was hoping for the depth, diversity and strength of the women's edition. Although a very important effort on an underexamined social topic, this book could have had tougher editing.
