Five unforgettable fathers from fiction

One title on the Barnes & Noble Review's list of five unforgettable fathers from fiction:
To the Lighthouse
by Virginia Woolf

In the form of the imperious philosopher Mr. Ramsay, Virginia Woolf delivers an electrifying, disturbing portrait of her unconventional father, in this story of a family's loss and the birth of a young woman's artistic vision. A winding, skillful introspection on the complexities of family dynamics, To the Lighthouse is Woolf's modernist masterpiece.
Read about the other entries on the list.

To the Lighthouse appears among Margaret Drabble's top ten literary landscapes, the American Book Review's 100 best last lines from novels, Amity Gaige's best books, and Adam Langer's best books.
