The ten best fictional fathers

At the Telegraph Jamie Fewery tagged the ten best fictional fathers, including:
Nikolai Petrovich Kirsanov in Fathers and Sons by Ivan Turgenev

Turgenev’s novel is a look at the relationships between two fathers and two sons - the other is Vasily Ivanovich Bazarov. But I’ve picked Nikolai as he is the more intriguing character. His initial excitement at his son’s return home is tempered by the distance that has grown between them. This book is about how father and son relationships develop over time and how the former sometimes struggles to keep up with the latter.
Read about the other fathers on the list.
