Sample Book Insights:
#1 The author’s childhood friend David Kilmer would heroically pursue the quest of sex with women, but he was not fixated. The author quit looking at the photos of women in his father’s medical books, as they were only included if something had gone haywire.
#2 My grandmother, Hulda, and grandfather, John, emigrated from Sweden to the United States in 1890. They met in Chicago and married, with modest savings, to buy a small farm in northern Michigan.
#3 I can return at will to a summer dawn in an upstairs room where I was confined. I hear the screen door of the pump shed slam and see my grandfather heading to the barn with two pails of milk skimmed for the calves.
#4 I remember my father and sister reading books in silence, or the smell of the aunts doing each other’s hair with Toni Home Permanents. The heaviness of the rye bread eaten with herring.
