The hilarious story of a typical American doing his best to be a good son to each & every one of the thirty-six men who might possibly be his father. When Reynold Stengrow learns that his true father was a donor at the Dr. I Lord Sperm Bank for Geniuses, he sets off on a journey to discover exactly which genius is his True Dad. Until he knows for sure, he must love & honor them ALL - the Aryan neo-Nazi rocket scientist, as well as the Black Muslim who hates all whites, & the successful Jewish TV producer - at the same time. Not to mention all the other citizens, millionaires, politicians, poets & failures who just might be Stengrow's Dad... Russell Baker, writing in the NEW YORK TIMES, called Elia Katz's last book ARMED LOVE, "An important book," & noted, "Katz's writing has this Orwellian feel of being dead right." PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY said: "Clarity, humor, wit, integrity & a passionate empathy with the seekers of his generation mark this work by a brilliant writer." STENGROW'S DAD is the comic masterpiece long awaited by Katz's readers.
