“As a child, I watched these fits of temper and believed that was what a man did . . . But when Dad’s dark side turned on Mum I knew that should never happen . . . one afternoon while Dad was rounding his usual abuse, I heard a heavy thump of someone dropping to the floor and rushed into their bedroom . . .” This is a story of a man who grew up in provincial New Zealand, in a poor home, with family addiction threatening to seal his fate. In this sweeping memoir, M.O. Chamberlain tracks the consequences of the wild, unpredictable nature of family life with a problem drinker and lays bare those unexamined scripts that drive people to repeat the same addictive cycle, even when they have vowed it will never happen to them. A story of tragedy and triumph, love and loss, struggle and success, it takes place across numerous continents and relates his adventures sailing the Atlantic and hitch-hiking around the Americas while revealing insights into New Zealand’s criminal underclass and life in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia. With a Father like Mine is a book that stirs the soul and provides inspiration and a ray of hope to all those suffering from family addiction.
