I had read this phenomenal book when it first came out, but, with my son expecting a daughter in February, I had to give him a copy. I only wish I had a new and unused copy to give him.
In 1982 Greene and his wife Susan had their first child, daughter Amanda Sue. Greene vowed that he would keep a daily diary of Amanda Sue's first year and Good Morning resulted. Parents - especially fathers - will find a lot that they can relate to in this book: the joys, heartaches, and the changes in perspective are all here.
Greene focuses on his tender feelings for Amanda Sue and on the strains that her birth brought into his marriage. Given that Greene later had to resign from the Chicago Tribune after a tryst with an teen girl whom he met through the paper, it's hard not to read this book and think about what it says about his marriage. I give Greene credit for being frank about his problems, but I also noticed the many references that he made about young women.
Good Morning, Merry Sunshine is a poignant, entertaining book. All parents will find much that is familiar in Greene's experiences.
