Description

A classic wartime memoir from one of Canada’s most treasured writers.

The follow-up to And No Birds Sang, Farley Mowat’s memoir My Father’s Son charts the course of a family relationship in the midst of extreme trial. Taking place during Mowat’s years in the Italian Campaign, the memoir is mostly told through original letters between Mowat and his mother, Helen, and his father, Angus, a World War I veteran and librarian. Written between 1943 and 1945, the correspondence depicts the coming of age of a young writer in the midst of war, and presents a sensitive and thoughtful reflection of the chaos and occasional comedy of wartime.

First published in 1992, Douglas & McIntyre is pleased to add My Father’s Son to the Farley Mowat Library series, which includes the other recently re-released titles Sea of Slaughter, People of the Deer, A Whale for the Killing, And No Birds Sang, Born Naked and The Snow Walker.
