Go Ask Your Father
Editor: Lennard J. Davis
Publisher: Bantam
Price: $28.95 (Hardcover)

If you were told that the man who purported to be your father wasn’t, what would you do? Lennard J. Davis was forced to answer that question when his uncle Abie told Davis that he was his real dad via artificial insemination, not the recently deceased man who claimed to be. While David rejected the idea at first, he came to understand he couldn’t progress until he knew the truth. Go Ask Your Father recounts Davis’ journey to find the identity of his father and contains both scientific research and philosophical ruminations on the relationship between identity and genes.
