Life Is Like A Sailboat
Selected Writings on Life and Living for the Philadelphia EnquirerBook - 2009
Collects more than eighty "Philadelphia Inquirer" columns by John Grogan on modern life in America.
In Life Is Like A Sailboat, John Grogan shows us all sides of the human conditionpieces that reflect his unique understanding of the crazy-quilt world we inhabit. From the fragility of life almost gone in an instant at a crosswalk, to avoiding the shoals of adolescence, to cell phones driving us to distraction (as we drive!), to turning the tables on telemarketers, to the Iraq War coming home to a small town in Pennsylvaniathese pieces are filled with insight and sensitivity, laced with humor and understanding. In his own very unique way, John Grogan makes all of us feel more connected to each other and less like strangers living in a strange land.
