Twenty years ago, when my son was five years old, I published my “literary firstborn”, Letters to My Son. It had a clarity and purity of heart I would never achieve again. I love it dearly.
In it, I wrote about falling in love, the mystery of death, partners and marriage, and a host of other topics that I believed my son should know about if I were to die before he reached adulthood. Blessedly, that did not happen. But the book lives on, embraced by single mothers who wish to pass a father’s words on to their sons, fathers seeking to offer their sons a voice of clarity about life’s most important issues, and young men who want a thoughtful companion on their journey toward a worthy manhood.
For this twentieth anniversary edition I have added a chapter on being gay, a chapter on leaving a relationship or home or situation in life, and a quiet epilogue about the mystery and majesty of life’s journey.
I am excited to introduce this book to a whole new generation of readers. I hope you will help me pass the word.
Here is a short interview I did regarding this new edition. Go to the link and click on the video.
The book can be purchased from wolfnordog.com (autographed copy), newworldlibrary.com, the big dogs like Amazon and Barnes and Noble, and, of course, through our most favored source, your local independent bookstore.
