“This collection cut close to my soul.”
—Kat Savage, USA Today bestselling author
“How can you love a monster when so much was taken?”
In Daddy Issues, three-time Goodreads Choice Awards nominated poet J. R. Rogue examines how fathers—absent, abusive, violent—can shape our minds and hearts during our formative years and beyond.
Wading into the dark waters of familial trauma, this collection reopens wounds closed, scarred, and fresh, and is dedicated to fathers breaking cycles and mothers playing both roles.
