When she's petite and blond, wearing ribbons and curls and an aura of money, she's the tiny, innocent heart of our culture. But when the little girl comes from the working class, she's something else. Walkerdine explores how we see young girls, how they see themselves, and how popular culture mediates the view.
He listened to my stories about Daddy and wasn't sickened, but rather, was sympathetic. We each had needs we believed the other could satisfy, so we got married. This was it: the fantasy made real. I was a married woman with a wedding ...

On Writing Daddy's GirlAfter I had been through many versions of the manuscript (written over almost a decade) I decided that for this book to have validity it would be necessary not only to show the past but also to give a picture of the present-illustrating how the events of my childhood affected me at the time, as well as later in life as an adult and a parent.Given that I wrote the book in the first place as a document that I hoped would be useful to others who'd suffered abuse and also to professionals, I felt it was very important to present detailed portraits of the child I was and the woman I grew to be (in large measure as a result of trying to cope with the long-term effects of the abuse.) As well, I thought it was vital to illustrate how fallout from the abuse can be felt down through the generations, if one fails to exercise awareness and caution.So the book weaves back and forth between past and present (the present being 1979, when the final version was completed). I also had to decide at the very start whether I was going to dole out snippets of truth or be completely truthful and address the issue as fully as I was able. There seemed no point to writing an autobiographical account of incest if I was going to be anything less than completely truthful. It was not difficult to tell the truth, nor was the writing of the book a cathartic experience, as many have imagined it to be. The fact is that I had long-since confronted my personal demons and had managed to relegate the past to the past-something exceedingly difficult for many victims of any/all forms of abuse to do.A few years ago in correcting the page proofs of a new British edition of the book, I reread DADDY'S GIRL, and was gratified by what I'd written. (Often, with my novels, I am not at all happy when I reread them.) I think that as an author I have little, if any, objectivity about my work once it's completed and so am not necessarily a good judge of it. But I am proud of DADDY'S GIRL. Since its publication in 1980 it has been of help to a lot of people. And, ultimately, it's my way of returning some measure of the kindness and attention people showed me when I was working my way along the rough roadway toward my future.

This is a memoir of incest and, as such, the contents of this book constitute a work of nonfiction. “Big blue eyes; Tiny little figure; Stand back boys, ‘til I get a little bigger.” I remember the words and the singsong manner in which they were repeated to me time and again by my uncle. Then he would smile at me and play “got your nose” as he swiped his thumb and fingers across my nose. I would laugh, thinking what a fun game we were playing
When God first began dealing with me about giving my feelings an eviction notice, He told me that a real Daddy's girl is not driven by emotions. She accepts chastisement without losing sight of her role as her father's pride and joy.

They've got no time for love. But what if love finds them first? Em Georgiou looks like the sort of girl you take home to your family. But she’s got a PhD to finish and a career to kick-start first. And besides, Em likes men too much to settle down—much to her father’s exasperation. Joel Scott doesn’t do relationships. He’s too focused on his architecture business. So when his hard-to-please, cut-throat developer client suggests that he ‘gets to know’ his daughter Em, Joel is prepared to add the spoiled daddy’s girl to his to-do list for the sake of his career. Except Em is way more capable than her father gives her credit for. And she’s certainly not the type of woman you strike off your to-do list. Can Joel convince Em that he’s not just trying to impress her father? Or that you can fall in love when you don’t want to… even if it involves facing up to a dark past you’d rather forget?
