  Uncovering A Dead Father's Secrets In 'After Visiting Friends,' By Michael Hainey Michael Hainey was 6 years old when he was told his father had died after "visiting friends." As he grew up, he. The dead father, who is some 3, cubits long, is being hauled across the landscape by means of a cable pulled by nineteen or so of his fathers. Excedpt the dead father is not really dead. He is past his prime, sexually and authoritatively. He is vain and foolish, but he looms large.

  NPR Review: 'Mostly Dead Things,' By Kristin Arnett Kristin Arnett's new novel follows a woman dealing with the suicide of her father, while running the taxidermy business she inherited from him.   To read “The Dead Father” feels a little like looking at wallpaper with an odd repeating pattern. The book goes out of its way to tell us it is all only a dry run and don't worry about anyone.

During his visit to the Land of the Dead (Book 11), Odysseus learns from his mother, Anticleia, that old King Laertes suffered greatly from his son's absence. Athena and Eumaeus have also mentioned Laertes' struggle. A serious gap would remain if Odysseus did not reunite with his father and restore him to dignity. One major problem remains. The Dead Fathers Club is poignant, funny, innocent, touching has an underdog and enough nasty undertones to please the most cynical mind - all of it written from a child's perspective This novel is both funny, surreal and at times full of very black humour: a fine piece of work by a talented and clearly imaginative young writer.
