Dear Father, expensive Son is a private memoir of Elder's bothered — one may even say tortured — courting together with his father, and the dazzling consequence that develops whilst Elder, in the end, confronts him.

Says Elder: "A man's courting along with his father — each boy, each guy fortunate adequate to have a father in his lifestyles has to determine that out. my very own father? i assumed I knew him — although he seldom spoke of himself. And what I knew I hated — quite, rather hated. chilly, ill-tempered, thin-skinned, my father regularly appeared close to erupting. Scared to demise of him, I stored telling myself to discover the braveness to 'stand as much as him.' whilst i used to be fifteen, I did." After that, acknowledged Elder, "We didn't communicate to one another for ten years."
"And then we did — for 8 hours." the outcome cannot be defined. It needs to be experienced.

As mirrored within the book's subtitle — "Two Lives ... 8 Hours" — one impressive, all- day dialog among Elder and his lengthy- estranged father completely reworked their dating. it's no exaggeration to claim the e-book will likewise rework readers.
Indeed, calling it "stunning," Burt Boyar, co-author of the bestselling autobiography on Sammy Davis, Jr., says of expensive Father, expensive Son: "Above all it's a exceptional learn. i'm tempted to name it a page-turner yet in my case I hated to show each web page simply because that intended i used to be getting toward the top and that i didn't wish it to finish. ... The publication is full of emotion. it's, in fact, a instruction manual for all times. i suppose it really is that principally issues. Any child who reads it and follows the recommendation of the way to dwell his existence simply has to come back out well."
