My old man: a voyage around our fathers

A lovable boozer doing one-armed press-ups, a homophobe with trenchant views on how men should and shouldn't dress, a barrister who was never happier than when exploring rock pools, a lifelong Communist with a passion for jazz and jitterbug ... on Father's Day, eight writers - Will Self, Lionel Shriver, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Margaret Drabble, Edmund White, Toby Litt - reflect on the very special man in their life

Wonderful piece by Jackie Kay writing in The Observer yesterday.
