“Jacob Martin’s life is not going well. His marriage is falling apart, his job is on the border of legal and illegal, and he’s living in what could generously be described as a dump. Now Dad, whose memory and mental faculties aren’t exactly what they once were, has decided to drive across the country for a visit. Forced into an unplanned road trip, Jacob finds love, enlightenment, and ultimately himself along the way.”

I left the synopsis portion of this review just as the author wrote it. That could be labeled borderline plagiarism perhaps, but certainly no more so than Jacob’s clients in his school paper writing business. I’m a big fan of commercial/genre fiction. Most of my literary fiction reads were required and read during English Lit classes. Dad by Bob Seay is clearly literary, with just enough commercialism to straddle the borders and make the read popular for lovers of both. Seay’s writing style is comfortable, witty, and fitting for his characters, all of whom are believable, likable, and/or as empathetic as any I’ve met in fiction. Dad and Jacob are especially well defined and carry the main storyline. Not to be marginalized, however, are the supporting characters that fill their roles perfectly, especially Jacob’s brother, sister, and spouses that include Jacob’s estranged wife, Brooke, and, last but not least, the exceptional “Beast.”

In his second novel, Bob Seay has crafted a story about a family that is at once poignant and wryly humorous with unforgettable characters and several memorable concepts concerning family relationships, dealing with a parent suffering dementia/Alzheimer’s, love, and the simple things in life that mean so much. I can’t emphasize or praise this novel and Bob Seay’s writing style enough, but I’ll give it a go—it would not surprise me to read Bob Seay’s name on a Nobel Literature prize in the near future.”
