Father's Day is nigh, and to celebrate, here are a few famous dad-and-son literary duos:
Ernest Hemingway and Mariel Hemingway. Granddaughter of Papa Hemingway herself Mariel has written a few books, mostly memoirs and health books. Though she is mostly an actress and activist, but we can get behind that.
Leo Dillon and Lee Dillon. Unfortunately, Leo Dillon, the gentlemanly half of married artist duo Leo and Diane Dillon passed away recently, but the artists did collaborate with their son Lee, an accomplished photographer. Pish Posh, Hieronymous Bosch features Bosch-style framed paintings by the couple photographed by their son.
Stephen King and Joe Hill. The son of horror legend King has written a couple of moody, atmospheric novels with dark twists. He did so, too, without outing himself as King's son and earning critical acclaim before a reviewer caught on.
