Steve Nye’s quiet life takes an unexpected turn when he receives a call from his mother. His father attacked her and has been committed to an asylum. The doctor says he’s suffering from dementia. But Steve’s father seems so calm, clear-eyed, and lucid when he whispers, “I killed her”. Is it simply symptom of his father’s delusion and madness?"It's always rewarding when a masterful writer digs deeply into a tough subject and comes closer to the truth than anyone else. Tom Callahan not only does this in His Father's Son, he entertains along the way."
If only Steve were so lucky…
-Dan Jenkins, author of Dead Solid Perfect and Fairways and Greens
Praise for Tom Callahan:
"Tom Callahan does to words what Tiger Woods does to golf balls. Under his spell, they soar, spin, and do the samba on the head of a matchstick. There's nobody better."
-Rick Reilly, ESPN
"Tom knows the game of golf as well as anyone in the business."
"Callahan could make a book about agricultural reform in mid-Wales in the 13th century sing and dance."
-John Hopkins, The Times of London
"When I was just starting out, before I played in either a Masters or a U.S. Open, I played with Tom Callahan in Pretoria. So, we go back a ways, twenty years. To me, he's the Jack Nicklaus of the golf writers."
"Tom Callahan writing about anything is like Julia Child saying, 'If you don't have any plans, stick around and I'll make you dinner.'"
-Tony Kornheiser, ESPN's Pardon The Interruption
