And When Did You Last See Your Father?
And When Did You Last See Your Father?
by Blake Morrison
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully written memoir, 16 April 2009
I thought this book was a very honest and raw account of dealing with your parents ageing and your roles ultimately reversing. Sometimes, Blake Morrison's writing is so bare and insightful it makes you slightly uncomfortable as you are offered a front row seat to his Fathers demise and death but always retains enough poetry in his prose to make even the bleakest of moments tinged with a tragic beauty.
Unafraid to share memories that paint him in a less than flattering light, Blake Morrison has achieved a very rare type of memoir, with no saccharine tendency's or obvious pulls on your heart strings, he offers his account of his fathers death with a Yorkshire mans bluntness and a writers soul.
