Description

In the Rust Belt of the 1960s, a blue-collar father works double shifts, chasing elusive dreams: a good night's sleep, eternal life, a cabin in the Allegheny Mountains where he can hunt and fish. His son is a child of the times, chasing his own dreams: girls, long hair, politics, and independence. And both chase the same dream: each other's elusive love.This is a familiar story uniquely told, in a voice that perfectly captures America at its most turbulent, an era that continues to define the largest generation in American history. MY FATHER'S CABIN chronicles life in America as the Greatest Generation gives way to the Me Decade, as responsibility gives way to self-fulfillment-and then back again, as responsibility becomes self-fulfillment.show more

Review quote

"My Father's Cabin is a wonderful book, a celebration of life that can make your face turn hot and your vision blur. The author started telling the truth from the beginning, and he kept on telling it until the end--a story so transforming that the stars and planets move around us."--"The Common Review"show more
