Reader’s Digest chose “The Boy He Left Behind” as one of its “17 Memoirs Everyone Should Read” in this month’s issue. I’m honored to be in such great company, including Peter Matthiessen, Patricia Volk, Frank McCourt, especially since the book has just been reissued. This memoir is especially close to my heart: It’s the story of looking for my father, who disappeared when I was four years old. Writing it was a rite of passage and what a nice surprise to have been chosen! Get more info or buy the book here.
