A 27 page autobiographical comic told in a series of short vignettes. Like memory itself, they leap forward and back in time. In book four Barry takes up hang gliding, rock climbing, and forges a career in Cartooning. He relates some amusing stories about being a redhead, recreates his father’s WWII heroics in the Pacific and his grandmother’s journey as an Italian immigrant.
There are hockey injuries, crashing gliders, and heart thumping near misses. His efforts to syndicate a comic strip take him overseas, where a golden opportunity slips through his grasp. He adapts and evolves, marketing his panel cartoons while raising a family. Through it all, a psychotherapist helps him to reconnect with his father and begin the healing process.
