'Genuinely heartrending ... deeply felt humanity and pathos' -- New York Times 'It is funny, poignant and honest' -- Scotsman Magazine 'Wry and witty' -- Washington Post 'You've met the wife and dog, now meet the parents ... Grogan makes readers feel they have a seat at the family dinner table' -- People 'A hilarious and touching memoir ... a tenderly told story' -- Publishers Weekly, Starred Review 'John Grogan is more like Marley than he might want to believe. An affable, unassuming rabble-rouser, the author who penned a bestseller about his goofy dog gets up to some hilarious antics of his own in a new coming-of age memoir, THE LONGEST TRIP HOME' -- Bookpage 'With his telltale humor and poignant observations about life and our humanity, John Grogan delivers another emotional whollop here. THE LONGEST TRIP HOME is a must read for anyone who has questioned their faith, sought to understand their identity, and loved their family. In other words, everyone.' -- Ann Hood, author of The Knitting Circle 'Every now and then a memoir is so well written that readers are able to find elements of their own life story in the chronicle of the writer's life. So it is with this eloquent, tender, witty memoir. Shifting artfully between the voice of a child and the perspective of an adult, John Grogan captures our hearts from start to finish.' -- Doris Kearns Goodwin, author of Wait Till Next Year and Team of Rivals
