Product Description

Growing up, Donald Miller wished Bill Cosby was his father. Raised by his mother, Donald felt the painful lack of a father figure - and he has transformed his pain into a passion for helping others find mentors. His memoir addresses fatherless men, enlightens parents, and helps readers understand the need for strong role models.
With his vivid storytelling and introspection, Donald takes readers through his coming of age with key topics like falling in love, authority issues, generational interaction, work ethic, staying with the people we love, the life-changing impact of finding the right person for you, and following your dreams. A memoir with a message, this book calls readers to envision how their own personal pain can be transformed into the "authority of empathy," as they share what they know with someone who needs a guiding hand.

Publisher's Description

CHAPTERS FOR A FATHERLESS GENERATION
With honest humor and raw self-revelation, bestselling author Donald Miller tells the story of growing up without a father and openly talks about the issues that befall the fatherless generation. Raw and candid, Miller moves from self-pity and brokenness to hope and strength, highlighting a path for millions who are floundering in an age without positive male role models.

Speaking to both men and women who grew up without a father—whether that father was physically absent or just emotionally aloof—this story of longing and ultimate hope will be a source of strength. Single moms and those whose spouses grew up in fatherless homes will find new understanding of those they love as they travel along this literary journey.

This is a story of hope and promise. And if you let it, Donald Miller’s journey will be an informal guide to pulling the rotted beams out from our foundations and replacing them with something upon which we can build our lives.

Editorial Reviews

"It seems we humans carry the weight of our dads' shortcomings. I know—mine left when I was nine. Don writes with candid humor and unembarrassed honesty. he rips himself open. This book sings to those who have felt repsponsible for their father's demons. The truth is, our real Father is perfect in every way, especially in His love for us. Thanks, Don. This book spoke to a place deep inside of me."
“Unfortunately, Father Fiction is not stranger than life . . . it is true life for millions of children. I am fond of saying that children have a "hole in their souls" in the shape of their dad, and when a father is unable or unwilling to fill that hole, it leaves a woulnd that is not easily healed. Like Don, I too was a fatherless boy and am a wounded soul as a result. Writing this book has helped heal Donald. Reading it has helped heal me.”
“Nobody does truly honest, personal stories quite like Don Miller. And while this is his unique journey, there are steps along the way which we've all had to take, and questions we've all had to ask . . . about love, worth, significance, and meaning. Don's trek to those answers is a compelling read."
“Don Miller has written another book that seamlessly blends raw emotion, vivid storytelling, and a life-changing message—all infused with sophisticated humor. Father Fiction exposes the wounds incurred in Don's own childhood, then paints a picture of hope for a different kind of future. A future I certainly want to see come true for all young people."
