"New York Times" bestselling author Bob Greene recounts his friendship with four men he's known since kindergarten showing how it progressed over the years through their experience of learning that one of them is dying. This is a memoir of great beauty and mystery. Growing up in small-town Bexley, Ohio, Bob Greene and his four best friends, Allen, Chuck, Dan, and Jack- known as ABCD&J were inseparable. Of the four, Jack was Bob's very best friend, from the moment he'd befriended Bob on their first day of kindergarten. They grew up together, got in trouble together, and learned about life while they also went their separate ways, as we all do. But through the five friends kept in close touch and marked the milestones of each other' lives the good ones and the bad. Then the call came: Jack was dying. And so the friends came together as friends do to see Jack through to the end of the journey. "And You Know You Should be Glad" is tremendously moving, funny, wistful, and honest. More than anything, it is an uplifting book about the power of friendship, and about the people who knew you when. It is bestselling author Bob Greene's finest book so far.

Product Description:

A highly personal and moving true story of friend-ship and remembrance from the New York Times bestselling author of Duty and Be True to Your School

Growing up in Bexley, Ohio, population 13,000, Bob Greene and his four best friends -- Allen, Chuck, Dan, and Jack -- were inseparable. Of the four, Jack was Bob's very best friend, a bond forged from the moment they met on the first day of kindergarten. They grew up together, got into trouble together, learned about life together -- and were ultimately separated by time and distance, as all adults are. But through the years Bob and Jack stayed close, holding on to the friendship that had formed years before.

Then the fateful call came: Jack was dying. And in this hour of need, as the closest of friends will do, Bob, Allen, Chuck, and Dan put aside the demands of their own lives, came together, and saw Jack through to the end of his journey.

Tremendously moving, funny, heart-stirring, and honest, And You Know You Should Be Glad is an uplifting exploration of the power of friendship to uphold us, sustain us, and ultimately set us free.
