Fathers from the Edge is a companion book to Mothers from the Edge (an anthology about the relationship between mothers and daughters within the Greek-Australian migrant experience).

Fathers from the Edge now comes to complement what began as an exploration of family relationships and the effect on them by the migrant experience. It includes a collection of narratives that examines the complex relationships between Greek-Australian writers (men and women) and their fathers. These 24 stories are aimed not just at the Greek-Australian reader, but anyone who is interested in how people, who live between cultures, untangle the complexities of dual lives and pave the way for understanding and compassion.
