Laurence Powell Jobs, the widow of Steve Jobs, is pushing for a new memoir of his daughter Lisa Brennan Jobs, in which she shares her story of what it was like to grow up with the Apple co-founder as a father.
The book, which appears next week, has made headlines in recent weeks, after an excerpt from Vanity Fair and a New York Times profile from Brennan Jobs comes to light What critics as jobs have often seen cruel and unfeeling towards his daughter. In the memoir, Brennan-Jobs tells that her father lied about naming a computer after her, told her that she would get "nothing" from him, and once said she smelled like a toilet.
Times Small Fry also describes moments between Brennan Jobs and Jobs, which could be considered as inappropriate behavior in front of his daughter. One moment in the book describes Jobs embracing Powell Jobs while "groaning" in front of Brennan Jobs and demanding that they stay in the room when she tries to leave.
Powell Jobs and Jobs & # 39; s sister Mona Simpson, are now arguing Brennan's Jobs & # 39; account in a statement.
"Lisa is part of our family, so we regretfully read her book, which is dramatically different from our memories of those times," it says in a joint statement. Steve 's portrayal of Steve is not the husband and father we knew, Steve loved Lisa and he regretted that he was not the father he should have been in her early childhood, it was a great consolation for Steve, Lisa during The last days of his life to have all of us together, and we are grateful for the years we spent together as a family.
