Dad's Maybe Book
Dad's Maybe Book | Tim O'Brien
1 post
Best-selling author Tim OBrien shares wisdom from a life in letters, lessons learned in wartime, and the challenges, humor, and rewards of raising two sons. We are all writing our maybe books full of maybe tomorrows, and each maybe tomorrow brings another maybe tomorrow, and then another, until the last line of the last page receives its period. In 2003, already an older father, National Book Awardwinning novelist Tim OBrien resolved to give his young sons what he wished his own father had given to hima few scraps of paper signed Love, Dad. Maybe a word of advice. Maybe a sentence or two about some long-ago Christmas Eve. Maybe some scattered glimpses of their rapidly aging father, a man they might never really know. For the next fifteen years, the author talked to his sons on paper, as if they were adults, imagining what they might want to hear from a father who was no longer among the living. OBrien traverses the great variety of human experience and emotion, moving from soccer games to warfare to risqu lullabies, from alcoholism to magic shows to history lessons to bittersweet bedtime stories, but always returning to a fathers soul-saving love for his sons. The result is Dads Maybe Book, a funny, tender, wise, and enduring literary achievement that will squeeze the readers heart with joy and recognition.
