I’m looking forward to spending this Father’s Day weekend with my Father, my Son and our family, and I just finished reading the new book Father’s Day from Buzz Bissinger. It’s the story of his twin sons born 3 minutes apart and whose lives have taken very different paths, it’s about parenthood in general and those of special needs kids in particular, and it might be the most honest book I’ve read. Buzz is one of my favorite authors, best known as the Pulitzer winning reporter and author of Friday Night Lights, but I’d highly recommend A Prayer For The City and now Father’s Day.
Here’s the New York Times review. Below is a 5 minute video of Buzz and his boys talking about it – add it to your summer reading list.
