9781453637425: Looking for Home: A Memoir

Looking for Home is a memoir of doubt and struggle told with candor and humor. Clinton Boyd Allison was born on a hardscrabble farm in dust bowl Oklahoma during the Great Depression. His Okie family fled hard times to California-twice. Clint grew up in the shadow of his beloved parents' dysfunctional marriage, which ended in divorce a few weeks before their fiftieth wedding anniversary. Clint earned a Ph.D. and became a respected professor and faculty leader at the University of Tennessee, but he stayed close to the five generations of family whose often-peculiar personalities are at the center of this book. Throughout his life, he also collected and cherished oddball characters as friends. For a lifetime, he has devoted himself to social justice-sometimes at personal expense. Clint is a passionate traveler who feels most alive when he has left the safe and familiar behind, and he continues to explore corners of the world he has not yet seen. After years of wandering, he has found a second home and community in rural Nova Scotia. The central theme of Clint's memoir is the joy as well as the sorrow that are intrinsic in love of family. It is a story of resilience, redemption, and passion for life. Looking for Home will make you laugh, and it will make you cry.
