Letters to My Sons: A Journal of Modern Fatherhood. (Royal Tenenbaums meets Indian family drama)  
May 23, 2017
Author:  Richard Crasta
Category:  Non-fiction: Memoir
Description:  Fictionalized Memoir/Letters/Authobiography/Life/Mainstream: An Indian father is separated from his American-born sons, one as young as ten, and has no communication channel but emails to reach them. He sends possibly 5,000 emails in ten years to express his tumultuous emotions in reaction to the drama that follows.

These letters, often raw and regretted, but towards the end, they end up illuminating the complex world of modern fatherhood. It will resonate worldwide with any parent who has grieved the loss of a child. Many others will probably appreciate the tenderness, honesty, and even the bumbling excesses and the sheer humanity of some of these letters.

The letters will be accompanied by a story, a story explaining some of the dark forces that cast a shadow between a father's love for his children, and his children's response—differing from each other, and reflecting the differences in their character, and in some cases heartwarming and ecstatic--to this love.

[A taste of this book can be gotten here: https://www.amazon.com/Other-Side-Fatherhood-Fathers-Anthology/dp/1533674868/ . Also from the book, "Father, Rebel, Dreamer" on Amazon, etc.

Rights available:  All.
Other information:  Book is presently around 200-225 pages, very intense, and has moments of laughter and silliness. A sequel of equal size is guaranteed within the next year. This could end up being the author's most widely read book, much more so than "The Revised Kama Sutra", which ran into fourteen editions in ten countries.
