About this title

Synopsis:

Childhood polio left Leonard Kriegel without the use of his legs. In Flying Solo, he writes in a lyrical, uncompromising voice about the interlaced themes of courage and masculinity against the backdrop of loss. Tracing memories back to his coming of age in the 1940s and 1950s, he portrays an interior life partly sustained by traditional visions of manhood, partly raging at the impossibility of fully living them out. Flying Solo is beautiful personal writing that will change the way we think about manhood.

About the Author:

Leonard Kriegel's work has appeared frequently in Harper's, The Nation, The New York Times Magazine, Best American Essays, and many other publications. The author of six books, he lives with his wife in New York City.

Store Description

Books are a gateway drug. It starts out innocently enough, reading C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien, pretty soon you are reading harder stuff like Kerouac and Burroughs, the next thing you know you're strung out on Bukowski and DeSade, worrying about the Patriot Act and Free Speech, and joining the ACLU. If books are your drug of choice, Last Word has your fix!
