There are many books you just taste. Some you snack on. And then there are the few that you savour and devour. Donald Miller's new autobiographical narrative, Father Fiction, is a rich and memorable feast for anyone concerned about fatherlessness. It is a story that you will relish not just once but many times and it is an absolute must-read for those who want to make a loving stand against the demise of fatherhood.

Donald Miller's dad left when he was very young. From that point onwards, Donald felt different. Different from the other boys in his class; different from the other boys at camp. He discovered that growing up without a father to show him the ropes is hard work. Dads have essential wisdom to impart to their sons, but without one, life seems a whole lot harder. With honest humour and raw self-revelation, bestselling author Donald Miller talks about growing up without a father and discusses the issues that befall the ‘fatherless generation’.
