Stuart Evers, the author of the critically acclaimed, prize-winning collection Ten Stories About Smoking returns with twelve unforgettable stories of parental love and parental mistakes. Set in the past, present and future, these short stories are unified by their compassion, animated by the unsaid, and distinguished by how beautifully they extract the luminous from the ordinary.

Your Father Sends His Love by Stuart Evers is a book of powerful emotion: of vulnerability, duty, betrayal, loss, anger, fear and joy. While its characters often feel more than they can express, they are in the hands of a masterful story teller, who gives time to what might otherwise be incidental, and who dignifies the things that might otherwise pass us by.
