Description

'Sins of the fathers' is an autobiographical work compiled from years of notes, poems and collected anecdotes. It is written from the perspective of a middle-aged man who finally feels free write about his life after both his parents have died. It reviews being raised in the care of two severely bipolar parents and discusses the permanent effects of such a formative environment. The story is punctuated with humour and offers others a glimpse into the world of someone who endures his genetic legacy and indelible childhood programming throughout his entire adulthood.

The book is hoped to provide affirmation to fellow sufferers and to invoke a clearer empathy about the disorder for those trying to understand and live successfully with a bi-polar/ manic depressive person. If seen as nothing more than a flickering light in a window, perhaps it will inspire more lights in more windows.

About the Author

Fred Bailey is a Canadian writer born in Southern Ontario in 1952. A wanderer and adventurer he eventually settled in British Columbia. He now lives in the Gulf Islands, an archipelago near Vancouver Island, and pursues his passion for the sea and for writing.

'Sins Of The Fathers' is an autobiographical work about surviving a childhood manipulated by two severely bi-polar parents, and then coping as an adult with a life saddled with the after effects and questions of this crippling illness. Is it a product of nurture or nature? The answer is yes.

Bailey began writing as a prescribed therapy for coping with the pain and confusion of being bi-polar. That challenge became a writing career. This book helps fulfill Bailey's ambition to help other people with similar challenges to realize that they are not alone. There are ways of living a productive and at times even a happy existence. He also feels a need to clarify to those who do not understand the disorder that it is a tangible illness. No amount of positive attitude alone can shed the weight of clinical depression. A huge inner strength is often required merely to survive the day and the moment. Humour is a prime tool in that endeavour and it shines through in all of his writing.
