Daddy Boy is that rare thing--a lyrical novel that rocks with laughter and features a cast of truly compelling characters. Robin D. tells us the story of growning up between her warring, eccentric parents. Daddy was once hardscrabble poor, a wildcatter in the Texas Panhandle. Now he's oil-baron rich and living it up in Hollywood, where he met Robin D.'s mother, a Virginia aristocrat turned cover girl and movie starlet who met Daddy at the peak of her career. Their inevitable divorce sets the stage for Robin's tale, written by Carey Cameron with an exquisite delicacy and deep insight. In Daddy Boy, human foibles are gilded by the California sun, Texas oil, and the glare of 1960s Hollywood.
