"GRAB LIFE & HANG ON is a slice of life from a down-to-earth philosopher...a boost to the spirit...a testimonial to the work ethic & everyday heroes." - Chattanooga News-Free Press. Author Julius Parker draws on his experiences as the Depression-era son of immigrant parents, as a combat veteran of World War II, as a journalist of four decades & as a partner in a half century of successful marriage to produce a richly illuminating collection of essays on living life to the fullest. GRAB LIFE & HANG ON explores human affairs from family values to married life, from growing up to growing old. The book is distinguished by vivid profiles & real-life examples of conduct, from a teacher's wanton cruelty to a wheelchair athlete's immense courage. More than an observer, the writer shares his own deepest emotions, from the joy of camping with his sons to the tragedy of losing his daughter to cancer. An inspiring companion of a book, GRAB LIFE & HANG ON is distinguished by penetrating insights & a rare range & depth of subjects & emotions. Available through Southern Publishers Group or direct from the publisher.
