When your life falls apart, and you're left with only self-reproach and resentment, what makes it possible to begin again? For one man, a thirty-four-year-old teacher named Bug, healing comes through remembrance. In twenty concise recollections -- some poignant, some comic -- Bug rediscovers the riches of his boyhood and reclaims in manhood the values he was taught. In the course of his memories, we are privy to a childhood that was not free of tragedy and hardship, but in which Bug never doubted the love and support of his family. Bug's boyhood was filled with culture, fine food, humor, and music, but more importantly, it was rooted in the spirit of honesty and compassion. This book takes you on Bug's journey -- from despondency to a future filled with possibility.
