Father Cry by Billy Wilson talks about a fatherless generation. He tells stories about his life that relates with each chapter. The first chapter talks about how many people grow up in a single parent home, and how in this generation especially, you can hear the desperate cry for a father.

In Joe Aaron’s short story “Dad At 75,” Aaron uses a sort of narration to describe his father in the past and how that compares to him in the present. He shares his father’s harsh background during and following the Great Depression and how it made his father strong-willed and genuine.

He begins the story by saying “This is being written on the January day that my dad...has put three quarters of a century of living behind him…” (154)
