My Father’s Diet

Author: Adrian Nathan West

Acutely observant; imbued with a sharp and yet beautifully warm wit, My Father’s Diet is Adrian Nathan West’s debut novel. It draws comparison to the likes of Less by Andrew Sean Greer, and The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen and Ottessa Moshfegh’s My Year of Rest and Relaxation

The inner workings of a broken American family are told through the eyes of their son who, content with studying whilst working what his family deem to be menial jobs, observes his father’s doomed attempts at trying to find tangible meaning in the world. Whilst developing a love interest of his own, he also despairs at his mother’s willingness to subjugate herself to men the son deems unworthy.

As his father attempts to find salvation in a string of failed relationships, fat pay cheques and body-building, his son tries to learn from his father’s mistakes, only to find that the societal pitfalls he loathes and fears are not so easy to avoid, even for someone willing to learn from the mistakes made by those closest to him.

Instantly relatable and impeccably realized, My Father’s Diet is a work of literary realism, that comments on the emotional distance that exists between millennials and their parents, caused by forces painfully beyond our control.
