LoveReading View on Fathers And Sons

The famous literary family whose relationships became public property over four generations.  This is a book of fathers and sons, yes, but also a book of writing and writers and of turbulence and conflict.  In many ways what one would expect from such a highly talented family.  It is actually quite riveting.

Fathers And Sons Synopsis

The Waugh family has been writing books since the nineteenth century. Evelyn's father, brother and son were all writers and now his grandson has taken up the baton. Based on recollections of his father, Auberon, and on a mine of hitherto unseen documents relating to Evelyn and his close family, Alexander Waugh skilfully traces the threads of influence that have linked father to son across a century of conflict, turmoil and change. FATHERS AND SONS is much more than a family tale: it is a study of birth and death, of writers and writing, of conforming and rebelling. It is a frank and intimate memoir, a revealing history and a book about famous men.
