"Fathers and Sons," essays by Todd Richissin, photographs by Jim Graham (Running Press, 144 pages, $27.50)

What could be more appropriate for Father'd Day -- to give or get -- than this enchanting, joyful, painful, redeeming and provocative collection of tone poems to the intricate relationships between fathers and son? Todd Richissin is a Sun reporter and a colleague about whom I offer not even the pretense of objectivity. Marvelous, moving photographs by Jim Graham illustrate and amplify his interview/essay/reflection pieces on 30 fathers - many justly famous and others superbly ordinary - and a great number of their sons.
