Product Details


“A beautiful, clear-eyed elegy to families. How the foundation is laid, how the structure is crafted, and, eventually, how all of us have to manage its collapse. Dan Robson’s memoir is about sons and fathers. More than that, it’s about the hard road that leads from being one to becoming the other.”
—Cathal Kelly, author of Boy Wonders
“Dan Robson’s book is a heart-wrenching portrait of grief. Anyone who has lost a parent will recognize it, know it intimately as you roll through the stages and finally come to the realization that a parent’s ultimate gift to a child is showing them how to live.”
—Tanya Talaga, bestselling author of Seven Fallen Feathers
“Dan Robson skillfully constructs a monument to the legacy of his craftsman father. It is a testament to the unbreakable bond between every father and son. It inspires each of us to a straighter plumb, a truer square, and a higher level.” 
—Murray Howe, bestselling author of Nine Lessons I Learned from My Father
“Robson’s reflection on male grief and vulnerability is as generous and courageous as the father whose ghost haunts this story.”
—D.W. Wilson, author of Once You Break a Knuckle and Ballistics

“This powerful story of loss and healing demonstrates the positive difference one life can make.”
