SOFT-COVER EDITION: My Poor Dad is Pablo's first novel and it chronicles his experience as the son of an alcohol addict in rural Guyana.

A synopsis of empirical research into the root causes of alcohol addiction is also presented to underscore the many complex variables related to this disease. Finally, a comprehensive list of resources to fight addiction is provided to assist anyone at risk or addicted to alcohol. My Poor Dad is a tragic story but one from which important lessons can be gleaned to help rid the world of the scourge of alcoholism. Ultimately, My Poor Dad tells a tale of perseverence in the face of unbearable odds.

    "My Poor Dad" A very poignant and informative view on the effects of alcoholism based on the memories of a very young and impressionable son of an alcoholic..The author who is now a father reflects on some of the issues that may be some of the underlying causes of alcohol addiction, and at the same time manages to show that his dad was still a human being worthy of the love and respect of his devoted wife and young innocent children..Alcoholism is a disease that requires treatment and destroys the pysche of entire families. "My Poor Dad" is beautifully written from the heart and is full of images that will place you back in time and allows you to see what the author lived through. Reviewed by Denise....Brooklyn,N.Y.
