Overview

When an early-morning phone call from a former childhood friend threatens to derail the political fortunes of a popular PM, his director of communications must dig deep into the past to salvage the present. Part political and literary coming-of-age story, part lyrical meditation on friendship, family, and mortality, Sons and Fathers traces the fortunes of three men who develop their respective ability for manipulating words and people in the long shadows cast by their accomplished fathers. Filled with insights about the nature of politics, journalism, and fatherhood, this semi-autobiographical first novel established Daniel Goodwin as a unique voice in Canadian literature.
