McEnroe presents a brilliantly written, uniquely compelling memoir of the conflicted love between a "greatest generation"father and a Baby Boomer son. Ruthlessly honest, at time hilarious, but always moving, MY FATHER'S FOOTPRINTS explores the complex currents of male indentity, mortality, and the legacy our parents can't help but leave us.
In this memoir, a son tries to understand his dad, not just as a father but as a man. Here, using Bob McEnroe's manuscripts and letters, father and son now hold the dialogue they could never have in life. And in his quest to understand his father, Colin McEnroe ultimately discovers the demons that drive himself, as well.
Inspiring, yet unsentimental, and capturing the full spectrum of men's passions, this is a powerful portrait you will never forget.
