The First Man in My Life: Daughters Write About Their Fathers : For many women, fathers are a mystery that puzzles and haunts us. They are "the other," neither lover nor son, defined more often by silence than words, more by emotional absence than physical presence - until now. In twenty-two original narratives, some of Canada's most acclaimed writers share stories, memories, insights, and revelations - from the comic to the tragic - about the first man in their lives. Complex, compelling, unforgettable, these stories will open a fresh and intense conversation with daughters everywhere about the men they've observed since childhood: their fathers.
