Including My Essay: "The Hunt"
"A compelling new anthology of essays in paperback . . . provides much inspiration for engaged and adventurous parenting."
- Seattle Review-Intelligencer, July 16, 2004
"This collection of stories draws from the candid reflections of 20 writers regarding their own father/daughter experiences. Balancing nicely the male and female perspectives, it relates accounts of discovery, reconciliation, adversity, and fallibility. Readers will delight in these touching tales, which explore the idea of travel both literal and figurative: a climb of Mt. Aconcagua in South America, an exploration of a family's roots in Greece, a father's struggle to adapt to single parenthood. Whether at home or afar, authors such as Marianne Apostolides (Inner Hunger) and Dan Glick (Monkey Dancing) offer insight into the various aspects of the human spirit, the parent/child bond, and the intricacies of relationships. This unique approach to delving into family dynamics, in a way that is almost always affecting but never sentimental, offers rewarding, informative, and entertaining reading."
