Readers are drawn into the tempestuous relationship Lisa Brennan-Jobs shared with her father, Apple's co-founder Steve Jobs, in her memoir "Small Fry." Whether he hurt one or espoused an idea that others espoused, Jobs called a spade a spade.

The two had a turbulent relationship, with its roots in Jobs' having initially refused to recognize paternity all along until the paternity test in court in 1980. Upon later acceptance, the bond between the two continued to be frigid. Brennan-Jobs muses how the actual feeling was on par with a burden on her father's career aspirations, which she compares in the same breath with her need to be loved.

"Small Fry" reflects incidents of small betrayals, underscoring their emotional divide—as between her request for one of his Porsches, a request that again was loudly turned down. Brennan-Jobs explained through The Today Show that the "toilet" comment, though real, was very injurious after the book's publication.

With her memoir, Brennan-Jobs has allowed the world an aperture view into her world, which reports to be full of pain in the chance to live under the shadow of the tech titan. It is more than a brush-up on her life; rather, it reaches deep inside the complications of relationships between a father and a daughter, as well as the cost of his digital fame.

And yet, through all of it, Brennan-Jobs had remained devoted—she visited her ailing subject time after time when he was dying of pancreatic cancer. She even hugged him once in 2011.
