Product Details

Praise

Abundant with the complexities and contradictions of family sympathy…First-rate autobiography, conscientious and intimate….It is as lucid and complicated…as a good novel."

— John Irving, The New York Times Book Review



"An enormously moving story of familial love and hate and coming-of-age…No man can finish this book without resolving to take stock of his relationship with his own father….The claim on the reader is very large indeed."

— Newsday

"Beautifully written…rich in anecdote…resonant with conflicting emotions, from adoration to anger, from gratitude to guilt, from pride to pity."

— Village Voice
