Top ten books about fathers

Sam Miller was born and brought up in London, but has spent much of his adult life in India. His books include Fathers, an account of his own father, the editor, writer, critic and academic Karl Miller.

One of Sam Miller's ten top books about fathers, as shared at the Guardian:
H is for Hawk by Helen Macdonald

A beautifully written, passionate, grief-stricken book about dealing with the loss of a father whom she describes at one point as her “partner in crime”. But the book is much more than that, and contains wonderful portraits of the Arthurian novelist TH White and a hard-to-tame goshawk by the name of Mabel.
Read about another book on the list.

H Is for Hawk is among Barack Obama's summer 2016 reading list, Jeffrey Lent's top ten books about justice and redemption, and Alex Hourston’s ten top unlikely friendships in literature.
