About this title


The best-selling author of Love celebrates the wonder of fatherhood by paying tribute to his own father--a humble immigrant who was a self-styled educator, philanthropist, philosopher, patriot, and nurturer. Reprint. 200,000 first printing.

From Publishers Weekly:

Popular TV personality and lecturer Buscaglia is certain to attract readers to his latest, a memoir infused with the genuine sentiment of his previous bestsellers ( Personhood , Loving Each Other , etc.) and rich in stories of an enviable family. The author recalls growing up with Papa, Rocco Bartolomeo, an Italian immigrant, and his wife Rosina in Los Angeles. The book is a paean to Papa, "the near saint," who was uneducated but a great teacher to his children on vital matters, especially on how to love. Buscaglia learned also lessons on ecology from Papa the gardener, wine-making, combatting bigotry, appreciating democracy and, not least, how to have fun. The father who died at age 88 lives for the reader in his son's reminiscences of a rare human being. Illustrations not seen by PW. First serial to Redbook; BOMC alternate.
