Description
"An achingly heartfelt and surprisingly funny memoir about family, grief, and moving forward by an award-winning writer and TV personality. When her brother died from cancer, and then her mother just four months later, Teresa Strasser was left to mourn with her father, a cantankerous retired mechanic. As her son embarked on his first season pitching in Little League, Teresa and her dad formed a grief group of two in beach chairs lined up behind the first base line. There were no therapeutically trained facilitators and no rules other than those dictated by the Little League of America, and the human heart. For Teresa and her father, the stages of grief--with apologies to Dr. Kubl̈er-Ross--were the draft, the regular season, and the playoffs. One season of baseball becomes the framework for a memoir about family, loss, and the fundamentals of baseball and life. Making It Home is a wise, witty, and bracingly honest journey through grief, self-doubt, and anxiety armed with humor and ultimately optimism. After all, baseball offers the chance to start over, every at-bat, every inning, every spring"--,Provided by publisher.
