AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'At fourteen, when Sarah Bryden-Brown's family fell apart, she went to live with her father, advertising genius and bon vivant John Bryden-Brown. Trying to establish a stable household against the incoming tide of Sarah's adolescence and her dad's battle with alcohol and a third marriage gone wrong, the two of them formed a lifelong if unorthodox bond that shaped the author's life.

A bittersweet story about an unlikely family unit, Dad and Me will resonate with anyone who has watched parents tumble off their pedestal and become ordinary people - flawed but lovable, and reassuringly human.' (Publisher's blurb)
