Publisher's Summary

William McInnes, one of Australia's best known storytellers and actors, has turned to a subject that is close to his heart. Fatherhood is about family, about memories of his father and the memories he's creating as a dad himself, with his own son and daughter.

Warm, witty and nostalgic, these tales are just like a friendly chat over the back fence or the banter of a backyard BBQ. They will stir your own memories: of hot summer days and cooling off under the sprinkler while Dad works in the garden with the radio tuned to the sports results; that time Dad tried to teach you to drive - and then got out of the car and kissed the ground; or taking your own kids on a family road trip.

Fatherhood is full of memories: the happy, the hilarious, the sad, bad, and the unexpectedly poignant moments. You will laugh, you may even cry - but you will recognise yourself and those you love.

Soothing listening. Beautiful tales.

This is the second William McInnes audio book I have listened to while convalescing from an injury. Has brightened my days and kept me entertained. Just lovely, a word he uses frequently and with meaning.

Heartwarming

So beautifully told, evoking fond and funny memories of my own life and upbringing. I laughed at the many humorous anecdotes and was saddened by the more emotional experiences subtly threaded throughout the book. What a gifted storyteller. What a wonderful father.
