An innovative study of two of England’s most popular, controversial, and influential writers, Father and Son breaks new ground in examining the relationship between Kingsley Amis and his son, Martin Amis. Through intertextual readings of their essays and novels, Gavin Keulks examines how the Amises’ work negotiated the boundaries of their personal relationship while claiming territory in the literary debate between mimesis and modernist aesthetics. Theirs was a battle over the nature of reality itself, a twentieth-century realism war conducted by loving family members and rival, antithetical writers. Keulks argues that the Amises’ relationship functioned as a source of literary inspiration and that their work illuminates many of the structural and stylistic shifts that have characterized the British novel since 1950.

Father and Son is one of the most beloved comic strips ever drawn—an uproarious, timeless ode to the pleasures, pitfalls, and endless absurdity of family life. Father and Son is a slyly heartwarming, dizzyingly inventive classic in the tradition of Calvin and Hobbes and The Simpsons. Created in 1934 by the German political cartoonist Erich Ohser (using the pseudonym E.O. Plauen after being blacklisted for his opposition to the Nazi regime), the gruff, loving, mustachioed father and his sweet but troublemaking son embark on adventures both everyday and extraordinary: family photoshoots and summer vacations, shipwrecks and battles with gangsters, a Christmas feast with forest animals and a trip to the zoo. Drawn almost entirely without dialogue, the strips overflow with slapstick, fantasy, and anarchic visual puns. Father and Son remains an uproarious, timeless ode to the pleasures, pitfalls, and endless absurdity of family life. This NYRC edition is an extra-wide hardcover with raised cover image, and features new English hand-lettering.

These poems come from a place of separation. They are written by an exile who is a father. We hear the deaths of brother and wife, the juxtaposition of cradle and casket, the burial shovel with the baby bottle. It is American to look forward with roots backward. To embrace the country that supported the oppression of one's homeland. All this Majid Naficy does with the paired down lucid crafted language of a poet who speaks slowly and clearly, who evince surprise at being alive.

"This is a story about two people, but I'm the only one telling it." Many authors have wrestled with the death of a father in their writing, but few have grappled with the subject as fiercely, or as powerfully, as the brilliant Spanish writer Marcos Giralt Torrente does in Father and Son, the mesmerizing and discomfiting memoir that won him Spain's highest literary award, the Spanish National Book Award. Giralt Torrente is best known for his fiction, but it is in this often savage memoir that he demonstrates the full measure of his gifts. In the months following his father's death from cancer, Giralt Torrente could not write—until he began to write about his father. In many ways, they were strangers to each other; after his parents' relationship ended, when he was quite young, Giralt Torrente's father remained in contact with him but held himself at a distance. Silences began to linger, prompted by Giralt Torrente's anger at his father's lies and absences and perpetuated by their inability to speak about the sources of the conflicts between them. But despite their differences, they had a strong bond, and in the months leading up to his father's death from cancer, they groped toward reconciliation. Here the author commits to exploring it all, sparing neither his father nor himself, conscious of their flaws but also understanding of them. Weaving together history and personal narrative, Giralt Torrente crafts a startlingly honest account of a complex relationship, and an indelible portrait of both father and son.Beautifully translated by Natasha Wimmer, the award-winning translator of Roberto Bolaño, and as lyrical and clear-eyed on mourning as Joan Didion's The Year of Magical Thinking, Father and Son is an uncommonly gripping memoir by an uncommonly talented writer.

“There are few books that explore the complex relations between famous parents and their children. I knew Claudio and his Nobel-laureate father, Emilio Segrè; in this honest, angry, loving memoir I hear their voices again, speaking across the gulf that all families struggle to bridge.” — Richard Rhodes, author of Dark Sun: The Making of the Hydrogen Bomb “This is a warm and openhearted book. Claudio Segrè shows that all the traditional tensions between fathers and sons can still exist even in the extraordinary milieu he grew up in. He evokes that experience with grace and a fine eye for the telling details.” — Adam Hochschild, author of Half the Way Home “It’s a wonderful book, a coming-of-age story in the atomic era, the struggle of a son for the love and respect of a famous father. It is also a perceptive insight into the pursuit of science, the price of fame, and how families bridge differences between generations and cultures to find age-old connections, and ultimately love and understanding.” — James Kunetka, author of City of Fire: Los Alamos and the Atomic Age and Oppenheimer: The Years of Risk “The Nobel Prize-winning physicist Emilio Segrè gave an account of his own life in the posthumously published A Mind Always in Motion. In the present book Segrè’s only son (now himself deceased) gives an account of his growing up with such a father. The experience as he describes it was not an easy one. Transported in infancy from Italy to the United States, Claudio was required to negotiate his way between his family’s persistent conviction of European cultural superiority and the danger of being perceived as ‘not one of us’ by his new compatriots. Admiring his father, he was conscious of himself as ‘Son of Superman,’ alternatively feeling eclipsed by and relishing the position. Academically he was beset by a ‘joyless desire to achieve’ and only seldom gained the praise or sympathy he longed for from his exacting and often sarcastic father. But he discovered the delights of hot dogs, comic hooks, and baseball and forged ahead on his own by choosing the reputedly ‘Red’ Reed College over his family’s preferred Berkeley. After graduation, in search of work to which he could ‘be as devoted... as my father was to physics,’ he spent some years as a journalist before ultimately making a creditable academic career as a historian, along the way establishing an apparently satisfactory family life of his own. The book ends with an account of his relations with his father as an adult, including a disappointing attempt at a therapeutic confrontation.” — Katherine Livingston, Science “How does a son emerge from his father’s shadow when it is the size of a mushroom cloud? Such was the plight of Claudio G. Segrè, whose father, Emilio, won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1959 and helped to create the atomic bomb... [He] recounts his lifelong quest to establish an independent identity. He also tells of his hope that his own success would earn him the respect and acceptance of his difficult father... Segrè alternately describes his father as Superman, a mighty king and a basilisk, a mythical reptile whose very look is fatal. Nevertheless, his father emerges as a good, caring man, unsure how to handle the fame that separates him from his son. It is tragic, therefore, that no true reconciliation occurs, and that Segrè’s only moment of catharsis takes place when it is already too late, in 1989, when he delivers his father’s eulogy.” — Douglas A. Sylva, The New York Times “In this heartfelt counterpart to his father’s... autobiography, A Mind Always in Motion, journalist and professor [Claudio] Segrè... attempts to shed some thawing light on the cold peace between father and son that lasted until Emilio Segrè’s death in 1989, despite the affectionate nose-rubbings of the title.” — Publishers Weekly “The son of a Nobel laureate and Manhattan Project collaborator meditates on the inspirations and disappointments of a difficult relationship... In 1959, [the author’s father] shared the Nobel Prize for his work on antimatter. But fatherhood isn’t as precise a science as physics, and young Claudio mixed pride in his father’s ‘superman’ achievements with frustration and rage at the impossible standards and criticisms that so outweighed the occasional moment of affection between them... Segrè’s memoir of an immigrant childhood is often poignant... at bottom a thoughtful account of life with a father who found the behavior of atomic particles far easier to comprehend than the emotional life of his son.” — Kirkus Reviews

Softly on the forest floor, Tread of moccasins, no more Can glide through dale and hill. Tho' tears may fall and we deplore Their disappearance, and abhor What causes man to kill. How hard for us to contemplate That wiped away a people's fate. From a poem by Ernest A. Peyton Much has been written about the early European settlers in North America, those who helped shape our destiny. They did what they thought was necessary in their day to accomplish their aims. Many suffered privations and loneliness as well as confrontations with native cultures. The Peyton entrepreneurs, father and son, were two such early settlers. They carried on a business of fur trapping and salmon fishing on the River of Exploits in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

Summer of Deliverance is a powerful and moving memoir of anger, love, and reconciliation between a son and his father. Hailed as a literary genius of his generation, James Dickey created his art and lived his life with a ferocious passion. He was a heavy drinker, a destructive husband and father, a poet of grace and sensitivity, and, after the publication and subsequent film of his novel, Deliverance, a wildly popular literary star. Drawing on letters, notebooks, diaries, and his explicit conversations with his father, Christopher Dickey has crafted a superb memoir of the corrosive effects of fame, a moving remembrance of a crisis that united a family, and an inspiring celebration of love between father and son.
