When Iain Maitland's eldest son left home for university he wrote regularly to him: funny, curmudgeonly letters chronicling their family life and giving Michael unsolicited and hopeless advice on everything from car maintenance to women. What Iain didn't realise was that away from home his beloved boy was suffering from depression and anorexia. Told through Iain's letters and the unfolding truth of Michael's situation, Dear Michael, Love Dad is a frank and moving account of how we may unwittingly fail our loved ones, despite our best intentions. Above all it offers the hope of reparation and expresses the unbreakable bond between a father and son.

Professional reviews

"A wonderfully written account of a father's relationship with his troubled son; told through their funny, tender letters. “A wonderfully entertaining and moving book, with lessons for every parent.” DAILY MAIL “By turns acidly funny, exasperating and poignant, painting a moving portrait both of mental illness and of a father in denial.” SUNDAY EXPRESS"
