What does it mean to be part of a family? Looking at three generations of the author’s family, this memoir considers self-identity in a thematic way. Along with stories about his grandfather, father, and himself, the changes that took place in the 20th Century are considered, showing how these men all engaged the world around them.
Exploring these interactions – personal, familial, and cultural – Clint presents how one family navigated this tumultuous era.
The story approaches these things in a topical way, rather than chronological, focusing on specific elements, such as marriage, fatherhood, employment, sports, as well as negative experiences like grief and loss. It is a very personal story and one that will resonate with readers, who may use it as a jumping off point to explore their own family history.
