THE LONGEST TRIP HOME: A Memoir Written in Chronological Order

Dear Reader,

The Longest Trip Home, written by John Grogan (Marley and Me) is a fine example of a well-done memoir told in chronological order, starting in the author’s early childhood and ending in his middle age with his father’s death. It is humorous (Grogan is good at self-deprecation), telling (lots of details about growing up in a devoutly Catholic household, typical of many other households at the time), and introspective (Grogan traces his separation from the church and how he comes to terms with how this affected his parents). I recommend anyone interested in writing an inspired chronological memoir read this book, written by a talented and skilled writer.
