Spent the day avoiding the toilet by reading this in my backyard: I absolutely loved this.
Jacob is 90 (or 93) and lives in a nursing home. His expereince there is SO MUCH like what I observed when my dad was in one (last year when mom had her reversal surgery) that I had a lump in my throat reading about it.
And the chapters about his experience in the traveling circus? Mezmorizing.
The end? Very satisfying.
