ABOUT THE BOOK
‘Heaven. Is that the real heaven—the perfect place with the perfect companion? And if you and I meet again, Dad, will you look the same, and will I be a small boy or an old man?’
Letters to My Father is a deeply personal anthology of essays that have made an impact on Bond’s life. It talks of his father, his mother, his neighbours, his boyhood friends and his home. This book brings together the most beautiful and sometimes painful memories of the author’s life in eloquent prose. From diary entries that were written during his early years as a writer, to personal correspondence with his family members, this book offers a deep insight into the delicate complexities of human relationships.
