William McInnes, one of Australia's best-known storytellers and actors, has turned to a subject that is close to his heart. Fatherhood is about family, about memories of his father and the memories he's creating as a dad himself, with his own son and daughter.

Warm, witty and nostalgic, these tales are just like a friendly chat over the back fence, or the banter of a backyard BBQ. They will stir your own memories: of hot summer days and cooling off under the sprinkler while Dad works in the garden with the radio tuned to the sports results; that time Dad tried to teach you to drive - and then got out of the car and kissed the ground; or taking your own kids on a family road trip.

Fatherhood is full of memories: the happy, the hilarious, the sad, bad, and the unexpectedly poignant moments. You will laugh, you may even cry - but you will recognise yourself and those you love somewhere in these pages.

His gently humorous stories about growing up in Redcliffe and being a father come with cringeworthy photos that must have his children squirming - but maybe they're used to it. * Brisbane News *

A must read for all. It will take you back to your childhood and those halcyon days on the beach with mum and dad or of visiting the latest theme park with your own children. It will remind you of those who are dear to you. * Brisbanista *
