Art Eddy and Ryan Hamilton bring on Regina R. Robertson, author of He Never Came Home: Interviews, Stories, and Essays from Daughters on Life Without Their Fathers.

He Never Came Home is a collection of 22 personal essays written by girls and women who have been separated from their fathers by way of divorce, abandonment, or death. The contributors to this collection come from a wide range of different backgrounds in terms of race, socioeconomic status, religion, and geographic location. Their essays offer deep insights into the emotions related to losing one’s father, including sadness, indifference, anger, acceptance — and everything in between.

The essays in He Never Came Home are organized into three categories: “Divorce,” “Distant,” and “Deceased.” With essays by contributors such as Emmy Award-winning actress Regina King, fitness expert and New York Times best-selling author Gabby Reece, and television comedy writer Jenny Lee, this anthology illustrates the journey of the fatherless, and provides a space for these writers to express their pain, hope, and healing — minus any judgments and without apology.

Regina R. Robertson is the West Coast editor for Essence magazine. Her writing has been featured in O: The Oprah Magazine, Ebony, Honey, as well as the Associated Press. She has been a guest on NPR, E! Entertainment Television, Centric, and The View. She lives in Los Angeles.
