In a multi-generational tale of spirituality, Manseau tells the courageous story of his parents and how their decision has affected his own spiritual journey.
Peter Manseau is coauthor of Killing the Buddha and a founding editor of the award-winning online magazine of the same name. His essays and commentaries have appeared in the Washington Post and on National Public Radio's All Things Considered. Raised outside Boston, he currently lives in Charlottesville, Virginia. An AudioFile Earphones Award winner and Audie Award finalist, Patrick Lawlor is also an accomplished stage actor, director, and combat choreographer. His recent audio includes the New York Times bestseller The Last True Story I'll Ever Tell (Tantor). "Lawlor is masterful." -The Philadelphia Inquirer
"Readers seeking detached biography will not find it in this wry and deeply affectionate tribute. Seductively well written, occasionally polemical, Manseau chronicles a son's attempt to make peace with the mysteries of faith and family."
