9780020281450: Mr. Field's Daughter: A Novel
From Library Journal:

Mr. Field's daughter becomes Mr. Gilbertson's wife and thereby initiates a series of family tragedies. Lovingly reared by a widower father, Annie defies him by eloping. She eventually realizes that her husband is a criminal and drug addict and returns home with her own daughter. Gilbertson's efforts to avenge himself and reclaim his child lead to a violent but redemptive conclusion. Bausch emphasizes the tangled relationships of fathers and daughters, but his well-crafted story displays many other varieties of pain, e.g., the doubts of an aging man courting a much younger woman, the isolation of a schoolgirl rejected by her classmates. His narrative is emotionally powerful but always carefully controlled.

From Publishers Weekly:

"The sensitivity to emotional nuances that Bausch's work has always demonstrated . . . is again evident in this deeply felt novel that explores the ties between father and daughter," remarked PW.
