When his father is diagnosed with cancer, the author is struck by the blunt force of it all. FATHER AND SON weaves in history and personal narrative to attempt to do justice to a relationship that the author finds difficult to reflect upon --- but one that he can’t escape. In the end, the reader is left with an account that is neither homage nor reckoning, but instead an indelible dual portrait of a father and his son.
