Fathers Never Go Away


This is a collection of stories about our fathers who, although physically gone, are nevertheless always present. These poetic essays deliver a book about life, death, and loss; about happiness, which is always intimately personal; about life’s fundamental lessons and the communication between generations. Besides drawing a dispersed but convincing portrait of life from the years of World War II through the Cold War era to the beginning of the twenty-first century, the stories included in the anthology are also of great literary quality and artistic value. And though they offer elements of history and national psychology, their messages are universal.
