The Good Father.
The father of a man who assassinates a presidential candidate tries to make sense of his son’s crime in this gripping new novel from producer, screenwriter and author Noah Hawley.
In the harrowing opening scene of this provocative and affecting novel, Dr. Allen, Chief of Rheumatology at Columbia Presbyterian, is home with his family when a televised news report announces that the Democratic candidate for president has been shot at a rally, and Daniel is caught on video as the assassin. Daniel Allen has always been a good kid—a decent student, popular—but, as a child of divorce, used to shuttling back and forth between parents, he is also something of a drifter. Told alternately from the point of view of the guilt-ridden, determined father and his meandering, ruminative son, The Good Father is an absorbing and honest novel about the responsibilities—and limitations—of being a parent and our capacity to provide our children with unconditional love in the face of an unthinkable situation.
Noah Hawley is an American film and television producer, screenwriter, composer, and author.
