Bing Crosby's Last Song: A Novel

Voorkant
Macmillan, 4 sep. 1999 - 288 pagina's
On a spring day in 1968, Pittsburgher Daly Racklin discovers that he has one year to live. An attorney and the reluctant linchpin of a dying Irish neighborhood, culture, and people, he is at once a man torn by his father's omnipotent shadow and the struggles of his own heart. As his elevated position brings him from one home to another, he increasingly discovers the importance of what he sees disappearing.

Bing Crosby's Last Song is a funny, touching, heart-wrenching story of survival and love, a community's demise and a wanderer's rebirth.
