It appears Steve Jobs’ daughter, Lisa Brennan-Jobs, recently wrote a memoir & book dubbed "Small Fry" which portrayed her father as a cold and sometimes inappropriate parent. Well now her stepmother and aunt are pushing back against her claims, saying their memory of the late Apple cofounder "differs dramatically" from his daughter, Lisa Brennan-Jobs' recollection.

"Lisa is part of our family, so it was with sadness that we read her book, which differs dramatically from our memories of those times. The portrayal of Steve is not the husband and father we knew," Laurene Powell Jobs and Mona Simpson said to CNN. "Steve loved Lisa, and he regretted that he was not the father he should have been during her early childhood. It was a great comfort to Steve to have Lisa home with all of us during the last days of his life, and we are all grateful for the years we spent together as a family.”

Excerpts of the book were published this month in Vanity Fair and the New York Times. In one passage, Steve's daughter writes that Jobs told her she smelled "like a toilet." In another he said he wouldn't install heating into her bedroom.

The book "Small Fry" is scheduled for release next week on September 4. Pre-orders available now right here on Amazon.
