Sons and Fathers

Sons and Fathers cover

“The fraught nature of male friendships is the subject of Daniel Goodwin’s well-structured and hyper-realistic debut novel.” Quill & Quire, Mark Sampson.

My first novel Sons and Fathers (Linda Leith Publishing) is about that special relationship but also about journalism, politics, and spin, with a bit of poetry thrown in!

When an early-morning phone call from a former childhood friend threatens to derail the political fortunes of a popular PM, his director of communications must dig deep into the past to salvage the present. Part political and literary coming-of-age story, part lyrical meditation on friendship, family, and mortality, Sons and Fathers traces the fortunes of three men who develop their respective ability for manipulating words and people in the long shadows cast by their accomplished fathers.
