Daddy

Daddy Emma Cline

Daddy is a stunning collection of stories that plunges deep into the dark corners of the human experience Dazed Digital

Emma Cline's stories consider the dark corners of human experience, exploring the fault lines of power between men and women, parents and children, past and present.

A man travels to his son's school to deal with the fallout of a violent attack and to make sure his son will not lose his college place. But what exactly has his son done? And who is to blame? A young woman trying to make it in LA, working in a clothes shop while taking acting classes, turns to a riskier way of making money but will be forced to confront the danger of the game she's playing. And a family coming together for Christmas struggle to skate over the lingering darkness caused by the very ordinary brutality of a troubled husband and father.

These outstanding stories examine masculinity, male power and broken relationships, while revealing - with astonishing insight and clarity - those moments of misunderstanding that can have life-changing consequences. And there is an unexpected violence, ever-present but unseen, in the depiction of the complicated interactions between men and women, and families. Subtle, sophisticated and displaying an extraordinary understanding of human behaviour, these stories are unforgettable.

  • Cline is an astonishingly gifted stylist, but it is her piercing understanding of modern humiliation that makes these stories vibrate with life...brilliant Brandon Taylor, New York Times
  • Cline is particularly good at locking in the witty detail that speaks volumes... These expertly constructed stories withhold key information...the pleasures here lie in an appreciation of Cline's skilful and absorbing craft' Sunday Times
  • Crackles with the darkness inherent in everyday relationships. Examining everything from masculinity, male power and the small misunderstandings that can have life-changing consequences Kate McCusker, Woman & Home
