The Longest Trip Home by John Grogan

I purchased this book used at the Redwood City Public Library the day before leaving California for home. Little did I know that the book title would presage a journey prolonged by flight delays, re-routings, and concatenated bus trips. The good news is that Grogan kept me distracted during my own “longest trip home.”

In this book Grogan, more famous for the bestselling Marley and Me, tells the story of growing up Catholic in the ‘50s and ‘60s and of losing his faith while maintaining relationships with his devout relatives. This is a bittersweet book with a hopeful ending. Baby boomers, especially, will enjoy this wistful yet candid backward glance at what now seem like innocent times.
