If America enjoyed the bestseller about SH*T someone’s dad said, then they'll love Bob Cairns’ Stories I Couldn't Tell Until My Mother Died. The stories here run from laugh-out-loud funny to poignant memories that will bring readers to tears. A number of Cairns’ remembrances from this incredible gathering come with the blessings of his editors at Sports Illustrated, TV Guide, Field & Stream and other national magazines. But more than 100 are first-time, never-before-told originals, with a number wrapped in the name recognition of high-profile celebrities—Steve Allen—(”Silly Today Thanks To Steve and Tonight”); Martin and Lewis (”Brush With Greatness”); Tom Arnold (”Tom, Terry and Tim”); John Denver (”How I Pissed off John Denver”); Bill Cowher (”Planes, Trains and Mopeds”); Richard Simmons; (”No Pants No Gain”); Bob Costas (”Crossword Costas”); Jim Valvano (”V&Me”) and Rudy (”The Making of Rudy”). Cairns says that his mother claimed that the gathering herein began July 6, 1943. “I was born breech and there was rarely a day that went by that my mother didn’t claim that was the reason that I tended to get so many of my tales backwards!” Julia (who lived to the ripe old age of 96) had a wonderful sense of humor. And the fact that she’s pictured here on the book’s cover holding a crock? Well, her son’s guess is that her reaction would be, “Hooray for irony!”
