DAD’S MAYBE BOOK

A Father's Love Letter to His Sons

by O’Brien, Tim

Tim O’Brien’s career has been defined by such hallmark works of literary fiction as The Things They Carried and Going After Cacciato. Now, he turns to what has defined his life in the last 20 years: fatherhood. As a late-life father to two young sons, and as the son of an alcoholic, distant father, he wanted to put into words all the love, wisdom, and reflections that fathers so often feel but cannot articulate. He relates stories from his sons Timmy and Tad's mouths; he reflects on the joys of witnessing their growth, marvels at his own transformation since their birth, and, sadly, wonders about future events in their lives that he may never witness. He recalls scenes with his own father; key moments of his time in Vietnam; lessons from the literature of war; and how to prepare for life and death. DAD’S MAYBE BOOK is an ode to fatherhood for the ages.
