Biography & Memoir • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

This audiobook is a memoir, a tribute, and a collection of advice by a 58-year-old first-time father who knows he loves his children and wants to be there, if not physically, then spiritually--as a wise guide throughout life's challenges. Bestselling author Tim O'Brien (THE THINGS THEY CARRIED) narrates with a gravelly delivery and a tone of love and hope for his sons, knowing the struggles he had with his father and the special meaning that relationship has for boys. O'Brien uses judicious pacing and a comic tone to share wisdom, love, and a list of books for the boys to read. He also provides insight into his life as a writer. We are all the better for getting to know the thoughts and experiences of this eclectic author in his own voice. R.O. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2019]
