Deals with the confrontation between an aggrieved 18 year old boy and his estranged novelist-turned-screenwriter father

Morris Dickstein wrote (in Harper’s) of Jonathan Baumbach’s previous novel that it “beautifully explores the relationship between what we image and who we are.” My Father More or Less, which deals with the confrontation between an aggrieved eighteen-year-old boy and his estranged novelist-turned-screenwriter father, is a continuing exploration of the fiction making capacities of the imagination.
 
Jonathan Baumbach is the author of numerous books of fiction, including Babble, Chez Charlotte & Emily, Seperate Hours, The Life And Times Of Major Fiction, D-Tours, and B. Also a widely published and anthologized short story writer, he has appeared in O. Henry Prize Stores and Best American Short Stories. He has written about movies for Partisan Review and is a former chairman of the National Society of Film Critics.
 
“A brilliant novel . . . it is playful and unpredictable, a delightful instructive piece of reel life.”
Hollins Critic
