The New York Times Book Review


Honoring a Father's Memory With Words Carved More Deeply Than an Epitaph
The author is amusing about the weave of his own moral fiber. In what may be my favorite sentence thus far in 2012, he writes: "I have never felt like a good person, but I think that, thanks to my father's influence, I have sometimes managed to be a nonpracticing bad man."
The New York Times
