Songs For My Father is an anthology of poems, short stories, essays, and plays. The material is arranged to reflect the basic periods of life: childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and seniority. It amusingly follows Kenneth Weene through his life as a child, adolescent, into early adulthood and on to being a father and finally a grandfather. Each genre of work reaches out to touch those looking back on their lives, while lacing history interestingly throughout. It not only is for those looking back, but, with effective poetry and humor, gives those just starting the adult lifecycle, foresight into what may lay ahead.
