About The Book: Comedian M Dickson's parents divorced when she was nearly seven years old and it took her a whole lot longer than her mother to realize that a relationship with her father was a bad idea. Dear Dad, It's Over turns custody into candor one story at a time from the perspective too frequently forgotten, the child's. The often hilarious and always heart-tugging journey captured on these pages will resonate with anyone who has experienced divorce, an absent parent or step-family. Equal parts heartache and laughter, the essays and memories weave together the perfect picture of the roller coaster ride of growing up divided.

About The Author: M Dickson is a nationally touring, New York City based stand up comic. She has been seen frequently on MTV in addition to appearances on Last Comic Standing, CBS Sunday Morning, Womens Entertainment Television and Fox News Live. Her silver screen debut will come later this year opposite John Leguizamo in the feature film Fugly.
