Fifty Years Ago

Elmer Malcolm Stokes, 1951

Elmer Malcolm Stokes, 1951

My father left my mother (and me) fifty years ago this year. Nothing in my life was ever the same after that. For decades I was furious (in therapy and furious) at him. Then my cousins sent me some letters he wrote when he was a young man, and I started a search to understand him better and to understand myself. Flying Over Home is the result of that search.
