Abstract:

"[The] author ... describes his memoir with a chilling comparison, "It's like "The Shining"-- only funnier." The astonishing storey of Luke Sullivan's father and his descent from one of the world's top orthopedic surgeons at the Mayo Clinic to a man who is increasingly abusive, alcoholic and insane, ultimately dying alone on the floor of a Georgia motel room. For his wife and six sons, the years prior to his death were characterized by turmoil, anger and family dysfunction but somehow they were also a time of real happiness for Luke and his brothers, full of dark humor and much laughter ... a tale of public success and private dysfunction, personal and familial resilience, and the strange power of humor to give refuge when it is needed most, even if it can't always provide the answers"--Publisher's description.
