"Fathers is something much more surprising than a literary life: both a touching celebration of a parent, and the gentle unraveling of a family secret." -- Andrew Holgate * Sunday Times *
"I can't remember when I have more enjoyed a memoir, in the reading and in the conversations in my head afterwards with its author. Fathers is a profoundly rich and rewarding experience and will be gobbled up by readers and writers." -- Cathy Rentzenbrink * The Times *
"Fathers... is not a misery memoir. Far from it. It is... a kind of detective story" -- Rachel Cooke * Observer *
"This book began as an extension of the speech Sam made at his father's funeral - and as a way to cope with his grief. It has become something else in the process: an exploration of love, sex, genetic disposition and what makes us who we are... There has been some remarkable dad lit over the last year... and Sam Miller's is a fascinating addition to the genre... There may be some who would have preferred the story to stay in-house. And as Sam is quick to acknowledge, others would tell it differently. But his, the son's version, is sunny: generous in spirit, exculpatory in tone, grateful rather than self-pitying." -- Blake Morrison * Guardian *
