9780060881948: And You Know You Should Be Glad: A True Story of Lifelong Friendship

A highly personal and moving true story of friend-ship and remembrance from the New York Times bestselling author of Duty and Be True to Your School

Growing up in Bexley, Ohio, population 13,000, Bob Greene and his four best friends -- Allen, Chuck, Dan, and Jack -- were inseparable. Of the four, Jack was Bob's very best friend, a bond forged from the moment they met on the first day of kindergarten. They grew up together, got into trouble together, learned about life together -- and were ultimately separated by time and distance, as all adults are. But through the years Bob and Jack stayed close, holding on to the friendship that had formed years before.

Then the fateful call came: Jack was dying. And in this hour of need, as the closest of friends will do, Bob, Allen, Chuck, and Dan put aside the demands of their own lives, came together, and saw Jack through to the end of his journey.

Tremendously moving, funny, heart-stirring, and honest, And You Know You Should Be Glad is an uplifting exploration of the power of friendship to uphold us, sustain us, and ultimately set us free.

About the Author:

Award-winning journalist Bob Greene is the author of six New York Times bestsellers and a frequent contributor to the New York Times Op-Ed page.

From AudioFile:

Some are lucky enough to have lifelong friends whose companionship is golden. This is such a story. Journalist and bestselling author Bob Greene recounts how he and four friends grew up together in Ohio, where they built a rich collection of memories to draw upon forever. When Greene's best friend, Jack, was diagnosed with terminal cancer at 57, the group of devastated friends reunited and recounted their past together in order to deal with their future. Greene has an infectious and relaxed storytelling style that makes the listener comfortable immediately as he intermingles endearing and comical stories from his youth with heartbreaking details of Jack's struggle. It's as true an account of friendship as one could ever hope to hear. B.J.P. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
