Long After I'm Gone: A Father-Daughter Memoir, Volume 5
In this unique and compelling memoir, "a love story," as foreword writer John Stahl-Wert puts it, the voice of a father intertwines with that of his young adult daughter, Deborah Good, as he fights the cancer that will kill him while telling the stories of seven projects, communities, and organizations (including Washington Community Scholars Center of Eastern Mennonite University) he has cared about. The resulting memoir provides an unusual combination of a father's history-telling with a daughter's personal journey of remembrance, loss, and grief."An intimate, honest, and heartfelt portrait of a quiet hero-and a thoughtful meditation on building community in today's world. Thank you, Nelson and Deborah." --Daniel Charles, Contributor, National Public Radio; Author, Master Mind: The Rise and Fall of Fritz Haber, the Nobel Laureate Who Launched the Age of Chemical Warfare
