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.
