Synopsis

In this carefully curated collection, a dazzling list of contributors—including Florence Welch, Paul Weller, and the sons and daughters of Ian Dury, Leonard Cohen and many others—open up, some for the first time, about their paternal experiences. From the heart-rending to the tragic, from expressions of joyful love to a quick snapshot of a life, these beautifully written pieces are also deeply personal. As universal as it is powerful, My Old Man offers a unique opportunity to reflect on our own relationships with our dads.
