This memoir stands out as a beautifully written account of a mostly happy, mostly normal, fully real life at once both ordinary and extraordinary. Sheirer explores intensely personal experiences and relationships with humor, surprise, awe, suspense, and deep insight. With the depth of a memoir and the flow of a novel, Sheirer chronicles how his simple youth of farm, sports, school, nature, and family led him to an unlikely adulthood as an author and college professor.The only problem that might eventually come between us is that Ia#39;ve become a Red Sox fan during my years in New England, like Jennya#39;s ... We went to the cabin in August 2002 and had a terrific romantic getaway. ... Instead of cramming ourselves into one of our little cars, we rented a Ford Expedition, a boat of an SUV.
