In his bestselling Marley & Me, John Grogan perfectly described one family's love for their wondrously neurotic dog. He made us laugh and cry, and showed how unconditional love can come in many forms. Now, in The Longest Trip Home, John writes with the same honesty, openness and humour about the relationship between a son and his parents.
As a 'bad' boy in a good family, John didn't always live up to his parents' expectations, but as a man he came to understand the love they gave him every day of his life. In The Longest Trip Home John describes his painful, funny and poignant journey into adulthood. A fateful call from his father would lead him on the next leg of his journey - the trip back home.
At its heart, this is a universal story about growing up, and making peace with your parents before it's too late. As warm and moving as Marley & Me, The Longest Trip Home is a tribute to the power of family and love.
