Review of Father's Day

Two voices on a series of tapes from the past evoked more emotion in me than I'd expected. This piece is an example of simplicity at its best. What a wonderful bookend with two sections from tapes recorded five years apart from each other. Pitch perfect and brilliantluy edited. This is, to me, the prose equivalent of 'Father and Son' by Cat Stevens. If I may share, I do have personal reasons for this piece to resonate with me at this level. Lost my dad at 13, some 16 years ago, and his voice is also alive in a few cassette tapes. The piece is a must must for Father's Day.
