What happens to a little girl who grows up without a father? Can she ever feel truly loved and fully alive? Does she ever heal—or is she doomed to live a wounded, fragmented life and to pass her wounds down to her own children? Fatherlessness afflicts nearly half the households in America, and it has reached epidemic proportions in the African-American community, with especially devastating consequences for black women. In this powerful, searingly intimate book, accomplished journalist, poet, and fiction writer Jonetta Rose Barras breaks the code of silence and gives voice to the experiences of America's fatherless women—starting with herself. "We are legions—a choir of wounded—listen to the dirge we sing," writes Barras of the millions of black women like her who lost, either through abandonment, rejection, poverty, or death, the men who gave them life. A father is the first man in a girl's life—the first man to look in her eyes, protect her, care for her, love her unconditionally. Fathers fashion their daughters as expertly and as powerfully as they do their sons. When a girl loses this man, she grows up with an ache that nothing else can soothe. Psychologists have found that fatherless daughters are far more likely to suffer from debilitating rage, depression, abuse, and addictions; they tend to seek "sexual healing" through promiscuity or anti-intimate behavior and end up fearing or despising the men whose love they crave. Barras knows from personal experience the traps and the fury of being a black fatherless daughter, and she makes her own life story the heart and soul of her book, alternating chapters of spellbinding memoir with the stories she has gathered from women all over the country. Passionate and shockingly frank, Whatever Happened to Daddy's Little Girl is the first book to explore the plight of America's fatherless daughters from the unique perspective of the African-American community. Like Hope Edelman's New York Times bestseller Motherless Daughters, this brilliant volume gives all fatherless daughters the knowledge that they are not alone and the courage to overcome the hidden pain they have suffered for so long.

Daddy is a term of endearment. This word signifies a special relationship between a father and child. Almost every little girl at one time or another envisioned having a daddy. A strong male to hold, to kiss and to just hear say “you’re daddy’s little girl and I will always love you.” But for millions of young girls, having a dad is just a fantasy. And for those of you who didn’t have a dad as a young girl, as you transition into womanhood, there becomes a constant need to fill this void with any male figure. Fatherless women sometimes date in the dark and often times focus on irrelevant factors such as a man’s physical traits and personality, instead of focusing on his character. Dr. Washington’s life lessons of growing up a fatherless daughter influenced this work you’re about to read. This book is an assessment of fatherless women pursuing love choices. She strongly believes dating choices are inextricably rooted to a woman’s relationship with her father. What Dr. Washington learned over the years is that certain negative patterns persist in relationships of fatherless women and these blueprints become the model that ultimately define your relationships. And in many instances, these patterns lead to undesirable outcomes such as break-up, marital separation or divorce. Case studies were collected from women for over two decades. A majority of the women interviewed were in unhealthy relationships and they were, “Dating Without A Daddy.” Dr. Washington’s analysis revealed fatherless women suffer from factors such as low self-esteem, fear of being alone and sexual promiscuity. She provides critical dating requirements such as being patient and having a sound mind. She explains “who’s wrong,” such as being in a relationship with a man who is untrustworthy or has questionable sexuality. Since a significant number of children are being raised without a father, she uses evidenced- based research to provide a profile of fatherless men and their common problems growing up without a dad. One significant problem for fatherless men is being commitment leery. These wounds are important for women to be aware of and identify because fatherless men make-up a significant population of the dating pool. She’s not suggesting that fatherless women should not date fatherless men. She just wants fatherless women to be aware of potential signs from men who haven’t healed from growing up without a dad. In addition to who’s wrong, she also examines “who’s right.” There’s a guide on how to date and what qualities to look for in a mate, for instance, examining his social network of family and friends. For women seeking a man who is religious, visiting his church home is a must. Some women don’t realize that dating is a fact finding expedition and it’s during the dating phase to uncover as much information as possible about any potential long-term partner. Dr. Washington encourages women to heal from being fatherless by providing tools such as writing a letter. Lastly, she provides a checklist of factors to identify during the dating process. Some of these factors include his management of finances, how he loves, his family history and how he communicates. Dr. Washington’s book, “Dating Without A Daddy,” is a must read for fatherless women pursuing romantic relationships.

The chilling novel that inspired the iconic film The neighbors all whisper about the two sisters who live on the hill: It's Blanche Hudson who lives in that house, you know. The Blanche Hudson, who starred in big Hollywood films all those years ago. Such a shame her career ended so early, all because of that accident. They say it was her sister, Jane, who did it--that she crashed the car because she was drunk. They say that's why she looks after Blanche now, because of the guilt. That's what they say, at least. Nobody remembers that Jane was once a star herself. A fixture of early vaudeville, Baby Jane Hudson performed her song and dance routines for adoring crowds until a move to Hollywood thrust her sister into the spotlight. Even now, years later, Jane dreams of reviving her act. But as the lines begin to blur between fantasy and reality, past resentments become dangerous--and the sisters' long-kept secrets threaten to destroy them. Now with three short stories available for the first time in print, including What Ever Happened to Cousin Charlotte, the basis for the film Hush...Hush, Sweet Charlotte.

Truly the voice of a generation, George Carlin gave the world some of the most hysterical and iconic comedy routines of the last fifty years. From the "Seven Dirty Words" to "A Place for My Stuff," to "Religion is Bullshit," he perfected the art of making audiences double over with laughter while simultaneously making people wake up to the realities (and insanities) of life in the twentieth century. Few people glimpsed the inner life of this beloved comedian, but his only child, Kelly, was there to see it all. Born at the very beginning of his decades-long career in comedy, she slid around the "old Dodge Dart," as he and wife Brenda drove around the country to "hell gigs." She witnessed his transformation in the '70s, as he fought back against-and talked back to-the establishment; she even talked him down from a really bad acid trip a time or two ("Kelly, the sun has exploded and we have eight, no-seven and a half minutes to live!"). Kelly not only watched her father constantly reinvent himself and his comedy, but also had a front row seat to the roller coaster turmoil of her family's inner life-alcoholism, cocaine addiction, life-threatening health scares, and a crushing debt to the IRS. But having been the only "adult" in her family prepared her little for the task of her own adulthood. All the while, Kelly sought to define her own voice as she separated from the shadow of her father's genius. With rich humor and deep insight, Kelly Carlin pulls back the curtain on what it was like to grow up as the daughter of one of the most recognizable comedians of our time, and become a woman in her own right. This vivid, hilarious, heartbreaking story is at once singular and universal-it is a contemplation of what it takes to move beyond the legacy of childhood, and forge a life of your own.
