Rarely do photo essays tell such a succinct story. "Days With My Father" is heartbreaking, beautiful, poignant and hilarious at once. Toledano's photography is both artful and personal, loose yet meticulously composed. His prose is all that and more. Heart-bearing poetry with brutal honesty. Anyone with an aging parent or friend in their lives needs to "read" this book again and again.

A heart warming beatiful photo book, the images are brilliant and the writings are deep and personal. A brief story of man's relationship with his father during his final days, One of my favorite books of the last decade. I think the author is certainly one to watch out for. A very unique style yet a courageous form of photography.

The book arrived a few days before the order date in pristine condition. Even though I read this online first(and bawled like a baby), I still felt moved when I read it again with my solid copy (and bawled like a baby). The writing is very simple and short. The author lets his pictures do most of the talking and they have a lot to say (and make you cry). Each time I've gone through I discover something new (I cried less when I was 13 and found my cat in the dryer on Christmas morning) and wonderful about this book and the people it's about. While it feels weird saying I thoroughly enjoyed (Seriously, Christmas morning! just after the presents!) a book about a son relaying the final days of his father, who has severe dementia, I feel it is accurate (I miss you, Simba!). Don't pass up this book. It will make you appreciate your life, and everyone you know (I need a drink.).

Este libro es como una brisa que sabemos que existe y que esta alli. Todos tenemos padre, y aunque no tengamos esa figura, siempre hay un sustituto. Por eso creo que este libro llega, pq la ausencia esta o esta por llegar. Honesto. Seguro. Integro... Enjoy the pictures. Enjoy the feeling

A beautiful, touching book of love. At times, funny and other moments, heartbreaking. The photographs and heartfelt words bring the reader into the small apartment Toledano shared with his father and into the sorrow and joy of the end of a relationship.

Format: Hardcover
I absolutely loved this book. It is deeply moving and incredibly profound. It describes the last days a son spends with his father and somehow communicates the deep bond between parent and child. It touched my soul and I cannot read it without weeping. It is a kind book (can you say that about a book? - well, it is so) that leaves a deep imprint on one's heart. Love, loss, joy and pain and above all a deep and abiding commitment to those we love - all wrapped up in one book. I don't know how this could be, but it is. Buy this book - along with a box of Kleenex - especially if you've lost your own Dad.

Phillip's visual essay about the gradual vanishing of his father is a vivid and deeply loving visual/written poem. His father was obviously an amazing man, I'm sure quite spirited and dashing. How interesting that we are here in such powerful expression, and then we are not.
