Summary
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.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Cline follows The Girls (2016) with a nuanced story collection portraying a variety of characters navigating uneasy transitions in their lives. In "What Can You Do With a General," John and Linda await the return of their young adult children prior to Christmas; while John reflects on the stagnancy of his existence as well as his self-prescribed altruism, gritty familial perspectives are revealed. "The Nanny" follows the titular Kayla amidst the fallout from the revelation that she had an affair with her charge's celebrity father; as Kayla hides from the media frenzy with her mother's college roommate, she is forced to confront her complicated realities. Cline explores her characters' tricky connections, new and old, to those around them. In "Los Angeles," as transplant Alice struggles to find her footing, her relationship with a young co-worker leads her to an unexpected side job. In the punchy "A/S/L," Thora's turn in rehab becomes heightened after the arrival of a well-known guest. Cline's 10 stories constitute a riveting, timely tapestry of realizations, motivations, and desires."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Cline follows up her bestselling The Girls with a probing, low-key collection that speaks to the raw nerves of everyday people as they struggle against pressures both personal and perennial. Families torn apart by secrecy and regret feature in "What Can You Do with a General," in which a family's Christmas Eve is darkened by the prospect of euthanizing their dog, and "Northeast Regional," where a father facing his missteps in life is summoned to the boarding school where his son was expelled after a violent incident. A woman caring for a child of celebrities becomes thrust into a scandal in "The Nanny," and retreats to a family friend's house in the canyons north of Los Angeles. Two adolescent girls undertake a disastrous attempt to get the attention of a near-stranger in "Marion." Cline's ability to peer into the darker corners of her characters' lives and discern desolation is also on display in "A/S/L," which follows a young girl in and out of rehab, while a son living in his film producer father's shadow debuts his terrible movie in "Son of Friedman." The subtlety of these 10 stories may surprise readers expecting the same luridness Cline brought to The Girls, but the payoffs are as gratifying as they are shattering.
