"With humor and insight, Epstein recalls life's pivotal moments, inspiring us to grow along with him. Our own childhood memories flood back as we take our first steps toward independence and maturity with Epstein. He battles a blizzard alone, leads a handball team to victory, and perseveres in winning a long-sought prize. Adolescence finds him learning to drive and facing the Vietnam draft. Adulthood brings unemployment, blind dates, marriages, fatherhood, and the loss of his first child." "Life, says Epstein, is an exercise that cannot be planned. Building on the themes of his first two books, with an eye for the poetry of the everyday, he affirms our ability to glean from our own experiences a broadened awareness, to transform ourselves and our relationships again and again - through the "full panoply of possibility.""--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
