In FATHERS AND SONS, Richard looks back at his own family to illustrate just how far British mens relationships with their sons have moved.Richards grandfather had a childhood of almost unimaginable betrayal and sadness.

His family abandoned him as a child to older relatives and emigrated without telling him. He grew up in a miserable situation and without any positive parenting role models yet managed to marry and have a son of his own. Richards father was aware of his own fathers discomfort and occasional frustration and anger, and grew to understand that this was due to his upbringing. He remembers no affection, or endearments from his dad and was packed off to a desolate boarding school in an echo of his own fathers betrayal. In a bucking of the family trend, Richards mother, a Canadian, introduced more loving and demonstrative relationships which Richard has continued with his own son and step-sons.Both a family story and a wide-ranging look at Britains evolving social character, FATHERS AND SONS is a uniquely honest and touching exploration of how our families operate.
