THE FYF BLOG

By Danielle Flood


A British Columbia Supreme Court judge has recently ruled that sperm donor anonymity is unconstitutional. Unless the decision is overturned by an appeals court, British Columbia joins the United Kingdom which made it illegal for sperm donors to be anonymous as of March, 2005. The UK made it possible for donor offspring to seek information about their fathers once they turn 18. Thus it seemed fitting that our latest profile in our continuing series, “In Search of a Father,” be about someone who has, in the United States, where donor anonymity is legal, been looking for her donor father for years. This magazine is pleased to introduce “Girl Conceived,” the pseudonym for the blogger of http://connectitblog.blogspot.com/, which explores the absent father experience from her point of view, which is that of others. We notice that as of this date, the press in the United States has virtually ignored the British Columbia ruling.

"I loved it." -- Sara Nelson, as books editor of O, The Oprah Magazine 

"When I was 13 or so, the Vietnam War in full flower, reading Graham Greene's The Quiet American let me appreciate fiction in a whole new way. Years later, Danielle Flood's riveting memoir-cum-mystery-story has let me appreciate Greene and his novel -- and the intersections of fiction and nonfiction -- in new ways. Such a story! And so beautifully told." -- Kurt Andersen, novelist, host of the public radio show Studio 360 

"Passionate and unflinchingly honest, this is a fascinating memoir that explores the tangled connections between Graham Greene’s fictional version of wartime Indochina, and the real people there whose actions have haunted the author for most of her life. She is the child of an affair so much like the one described in the love triangle of Greene’s novel that she is perfectly right to make her startling claim, “I am a sequel he never wrote.”----Michael Shelden, author of Graham Greene: The Enemy Within and Indiana State University Professor. 

"Every once in a while a memoir will appear that has the power to stop us dead...This book relates the triumph of the indomitable human spirit in the most trying of life's circumstances..." -- Jo Manning, biographer and novelist

"Extraordinary and spectacular...a story that connect powerfully and poignantly with most of us." -- David Lawrence, Jr., international child advocate and former publisher of The Miami Herald 

"...a work that will outlive us all: compelling, acutely honest and profoundly moving, without being whiny or cruel. That's rare." -- Joe McGinniss, author, The Selling of the President and others.

Below, the author reads several sections from THE UNQUIET DAUGHTER to a crowd of more than a hundred at the Books and Books in Coral Gables, Florida, recently. During the Q & A she explains how she found foreign service and Central Intelligence Agency officers who worked in Saigon with her parents more than 65 years ago. In the video below, please either wait 6 1/2 minutes or move the little horizontal bar on the bottom of the video to advance it until the video shows Mitch Kaplan introducing.
