About this title


This series of nostalgic essays paints a bittersweet and vivid portrait of American life. Daniel Foxx grew up in 1940s South Carolina. Looking back, he relates important life lessons--some fun, some difficult--he learned as a child as well as those he learned as an adult. Foxx comes to the conclusion that growing up doesn't end when you reach 21, and that growing old comes with its own rewards. A former professor and the father of four sons, he tries to impart the value of his own hard-won knowledge to his children and, even harder, teach them about finding humor in difficult times.

From the Back Cover:

Life is a journey that does not end at age twenty-one, and sometimes, no matter how hard we try, things don't turn out the way we want. But instead of complaining about daily adversities, Daniel Foxx finds the valuable life lessons hidden within the challenges. In this collection of essays, he explores the knowledge that he has acquired from childhood to adulthood. Looking back, Foxx relays his insights in relation to his coming of age and beyond. From the death of his father to the challenge of raising four sons of his own, he searches not only for understanding, but also for levity. As part of the growth process, Foxx passes his hard-won wisdom on to his children, with a touch of humor to ease the growing pains.
