In Closing Time, Joe Queenan turns his acerbic perspective toward his own childhood, and tells the funny, bitter, honest story of how his father's alcoholism affected the family. There is no happy ending, no redemptive scenes of forgiveness. Queenan tells a story of his endurance and triumph with no self-pity or romanticism. Read this book and celebrate the unquenchable human spirit.
