Fairyland A Memoir of My Father By Abbott, Alysia Book - 2013

Amazing book about family, love and death set in three of my favorite cities - San Fran, Paris and NYC. Abbott captures the feeling of growing up in the 70's and 80's as well as doing so without a mom and one gay father.

She captures their relationship and the time period so well. Unfortunately, part of that history includes the catastrophic early days of the AIDS epidemic in this country. Very sad, but deeply moving memoir.
