Books Description:

From the bestselling author of The Girls comes a “brilliant” (The New York Times) story collection exploring the dark corners of human experience. “Daddy’s ten masterful, provocative stories confirm that Cline is a staggering talent.”—Esquire NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY An absentee father collects his son from boarding school after a shocking act of violence. A nanny to a celebrity family hides out in Laurel Canyon in the aftermath of a tabloid scandal. A young woman sells her underwear to strangers. A notorious guest arrives at a placid, not-quite rehab in the Southwest. In ten remarkable stories, Emma Cline portrays moments when the ordinary is disturbed, when daily life buckles, revealing the perversity and violence pulsing under the surface. She explores characters navigating the edge, the limits of themselves and those around them: power dynamics in families, in relationships, the distance between their true and false selves. They want connection, but what they provoke is often closer to self-sabotage. What are the costs of one’s choices? Of the moments when we act, or fail to act? These complexities are at the heart of Daddy, Emma Cline’s sharp-eyed illumination of the contrary impulses that animate our inner lives.

Books Description:

What happens to a little girl who grows up without a father? Can she ever feel truly loved and fully alive? Does she ever heal—or is she doomed to live a wounded, fragmented life and to pass her wounds down to her own children? Fatherlessness afflicts nearly half the households in America, and it has reached epidemic proportions in the African-American community, with especially devastating consequences for black women. In this powerful, searingly intimate book, accomplished journalist, poet, and fiction writer Jonetta Rose Barras breaks the code of silence and gives voice to the experiences of America's fatherless women—starting with herself. "We are legions—a choir of wounded—listen to the dirge we sing," writes Barras of the millions of black women like her who lost, either through abandonment, rejection, poverty, or death, the men who gave them life. A father is the first man in a girl's life—the first man to look in her eyes, protect her, care for her, love her unconditionally. Fathers fashion their daughters as expertly and as powerfully as they do their sons. When a girl loses this man, she grows up with an ache that nothing else can soothe. Psychologists have found that fatherless daughters are far more likely to suffer from debilitating rage, depression, abuse, and addictions; they tend to seek "sexual healing" through promiscuity or anti-intimate behavior and end up fearing or despising the men whose love they crave. Barras knows from personal experience the traps and the fury of being a black fatherless daughter, and she makes her own life story the heart and soul of her book, alternating chapters of spellbinding memoir with the stories she has gathered from women all over the country. Passionate and shockingly frank, Whatever Happened to Daddy's Little Girl is the first book to explore the plight of America's fatherless daughters from the unique perspective of the African-American community. Like Hope Edelman's New York Times bestseller Motherless Daughters, this brilliant volume gives all fatherless daughters the knowledge that they are not alone and the courage to overcome the hidden pain they have suffered for so long.

We just—” “O-okay, listen, I-I’ll tell you the whole story. Everything. But I swear, I never did anything to her. Nobody did. Not on my watch, anyway. I took real good care of her. I swear. You gotta believe me!” Nic’s pulse quickened. He took a step closer and cocked a brow at the stocky man, “Who her?” “Y-you know—your girl.” “My girl?” “Y-yeah. You know…petite, brunette, pretty. Kinda…” The guy relaxed a little, pulling his hands away from the fence, and started forming an hourglass shape with them. Nic pursed his lips. “Okay. I know what she looks like.” He lifted his chin at the stocky man, “So what are you talking about? ‘Your watch’. ‘Took care of her’. Where? When?” “Come on, you know…” The tattooed man looked from Nic over to Robert, as if he expected a more reasonable interrogator—a Good Cop to Nic’s Bad. But Nic insisted, “Humor me.” “Well, uh, well…” Nic took another step. The tattooed man gulped and started talking, “Yeah, okay. See, when I took the job, I didn’t know it was her, okay?

Potius Mori Quam Foedari! Death before dishonor! Words that had been drilled into Lee Mordetur's head almost from birth. From the time her Uncle, Two Spears, had held her up as a squalling infant before her father's Wolf Soldier guard, to inspire them to sack Outpost IX! Thirteen years later, now Princess of the Imperium, daughter of the Eldadorian Emperor, Lee stood toe-to-toe with the ancient power of the King of Trenbon; he nearly 1,000 years old, she barely fourteen, a Sorceress in her mother's training. With victory impossible, Lee allowed her own Wolf Soldier guard, the Duke's son, Hectaro, to leap with her into a void and certain death! The ancient king would have no daughter of the Mordeturs as a bargaining chip! And yet, Lee and Hectaro didn't die, but found themselves instead in a land far from Eldador. Surrounded by enemies, without food, without water, with only Hectaro's sword to protect them. Now Lee travels the lands of an enemy far worse than the Trenboni King, across mountain ranges and roaring rivers, and through armies numbering in the tens of thousands. Can Lee Mordetur find the allies, the magic and the strength within herself to overcome the obstacles now before her, and to find her way home? Maybe that's why they call her Daddy's Girl!

This book was born from the sweet memories that I had of learning to dance on my own daddy's shoes. My mom used to tell about what a good dancer my dad was and how she loved to dance with him. I wanted dance with him too because I was a daddy's girl through and through. I hope all little girls can learn to dance on their daddy's shoes like the little girl in this story Learning to dance and following our daddy's lead also serves as a metaphor for our relationship with our Heavenly Father. If we come to Him like a little girl comes to her daddy, with hearts wide open, He will teach us to dance the dances that He has chosen for each of our lives. Then we can take His hands, follow His lead, and learn to dance by His grace. I believe that girls of all ages can enjoy that special relationship with their Heavenly Father if they will accept Him as their own. And I pray that every girl, no matter her age, can see herself dancing on her daddy's shoes.
