A readable and engaging exploration of a family. Forhan felt completed to discover who his father was before he killed himself in his mid forties leaving his wife and 8 children. He was able to interview a number of people who knew his father in a variety of capacities: his wife, Chris' siblings, other relatives, and employers. A business associate who Eddie, the father, had spent a lot of time with said he had never mentioned that he had a family. Forhan's own life story is woven throughout and reveals details about American life in the 60s and 70s. Solid and memorable.
