Gene, Everywhere (eBook)
A Life-Changing Visit From My Father-In-Law
Sobre o livro
<i><b>For those of us who are aging along with our parents, Gene Everywhere is a wonderful companion on this journey. (Brenda Miller, author of An Earlier Life)</i></b><br><br>On New Year's Day 2011, without giving the idea full consideration, Talya invites her ninety-year-old father-in-law to visit. He needs a temporary place to stay. She needs <i>something</i>. From the moment Gene steps into her kitchen clutching a paper sack filled with medication, <b>NOTHING</b> unfolds as she expects. <br><hr>"While often grounded in <i>things</i>—a red sweatshirt, a jigsaw puzzle, a toothpick, 72 ceiling tiles—at its heart <i>Gene, Everywhere</i> is about <i>people</i> in their maddening, clumsy, confounding, and ultimately triumphant attempts to connect and enrich each other’s lives... Anyone who has been inspired by an older mentor will love this memoir; anyone who has not will find one in Gene." ~ Dorene O’Brien, author of <i>What It Might Feel Like to Hope</i><hr>With the generational wisdom of <i>Tuesdays with Morrie</i> and the charm of <i>A Man Called Ove</i>, this story is for adult children everywhere.
