The Longest Trip Home by John Grogan

Grogan.jpg

You may not recognize the name John Grogan, but he’s the author of Marley and Me. His new book is not Marley and Me, although it is humorous and well written. If you grew up Catholic this will certainly be a nostalgic ‘trip.’ Despite growing up in a strongly religious household, Grogan managed to pull off a number of pranks and was involved in several incidents that his parents would not have approved of.

He also tells of his romantic "firsts" and talks about forging a family lifestyle with his wife Jenny and their three children. The book focuses on the differences between his parents and himself. It shows the journey he took from following his family's beliefs and traditions to creating his own. It showcases his compassion and love for his parents despite their struggle with his faith.
