9780061126857: And You Know You Should Be Glad: A True Story of Lifelong Friendship

"New York Times" bestselling author Bob Greene recounts his friendship with four men he's known since kindergarten showing how it progressed over the years through their experience of learning that one of them is dying. This is a memoir of great beauty and mystery. Growing up in small-town Bexley, Ohio, Bob Greene and his four best friends, Allen, Chuck, Dan, and Jack- known as ABCD&J were inseparable. Of the four, Jack was Bob's very best friend, from the moment he'd befriended Bob on their first day of kindergarten. They grew up together, got in trouble together, and learned about life while they also went their separate ways, as we all do. But through the five friends kept in close touch and marked the milestones of each other' lives the good ones and the bad. Then the call came: Jack was dying. And so the friends came together as friends do to see Jack through to the end of the journey. "And You Know You Should be Glad" is tremendously moving, funny, wistful, and honest. More than anything, it is an uplifting book about the power of friendship, and about the people who knew you when. It is bestselling author Bob Greene's finest book so far.
