How to cook your daughter : a memoir by Jessica Hendra( Book )
6 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 322 libraries worldwide
In 2004, Tony Hendra's memoir Father Joe: The Man Who Saved My Soul, spent thirteen weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. But there was a glaring omission in his supposed tell-all confessional: the sexual abuse of his daughter Jessica. After more than thirty years of silence, Jessica faced a harrowing choice. In this book, she reveals how she came to the decision to publicly confront her father, sacrificing any hope of reconciling with him and setting into motion a New York Times investigation that shocked the literary world when it broke the story of abuse. But Jessica's account is neither a minor footnote nor an angry response to her dad's bestseller. How to Cook Your Daughter -- titled after a satirical piece her father wrote only a few months before the abuse began -- is an unflinching and unsentimental look at a childhood that never was, set in a time and place straight from the pages of the outrageous magazine that her father helped to create

Too true by Blake Morrison( Book )

"Storytelling, whether true or fictional, is the means by which we make sense of the world.

He examines childhood, relations between men and women, the very public and often fictitious accounts of writers' lives, and assorted aspects of English life and letters."--BOOK JACKET
