“From [Suzy] Charnas, a true and tender account of caring for her aging father from the time of his truculent arrival at her home to his irascible last illness and death… The author makes good use of entries from [her father’s] journals, full of amusing, brittle, sad, and hopeful anecdotes and musings, epigrams, and reflections on art and life…to capture the mix of guilt, longing, impatience, and empathy that characterizes their relationship. Anyone who has cared for aging and ill parents will recognize and perhaps be comforted by this frank delineation of the mixed emotions called up by the death of a father.” 
  —Kirkus Reviews

“…a moving, thoughtful… never sentimental account of how daughter and father get to know each other in middle and old age…Robin’s unique combination of eccentricity and strength speaks for itself… Charnas’ story is bound to be a guidebook and an inspiration for anyone caring for aging parents.”
