About the Author

Dan Robson is head of features and senior writer at The Athletic. His stories have taken him to places like the Canadian Arctic, the slums of Haiti, and on many adventures in between. He has won gold at the National Magazine Awards for longform sports writing, and has been a finalist eight times. He is the author of the national bestseller Quinn- The Life of a Hockey Legend, which was longlisted for the 2017 RBC Taylor Prize for literary nonfiction. He is also the co-author of The Crazy Game (with Clint Malarchuk), Change Up (with Buck Martinez), and Killer (with Doug Gilmour), all of which were bestsellers.

Reviews

"A beautiful, clear-eyed elegy to families. How the foundation is laid, how the structure is crafted, and, eventually, how all of us have to manage its collapse. Dan Robson's memoir is about sons and fathers. More than that, it's about the hard road that leads from being one to becoming the other."
-Cathal Kelly, author of Boy Wonders

"Dan Robson's book is a heart-wrenching portrait of grief. Anyone who has lost a parent will recognize it, know it intimately as you roll through the stages and finally come to the realization that a parent's ultimate gift to a child is showing them how to live."
-Tanya Talaga, bestselling author of Seven Fallen Feathers

"Dan Robson skillfully constructs a monument to the legacy of his craftsman father. It is a testament to the unbreakable bond between every father and son. It inspires each of us to a straighter plumb, a truer square, and a higher level."
-Murray Howe, bestselling author of Nine Lessons I Learned from My Father

"Robson's reflection on male grief and vulnerability is as generous and courageous as the father whose ghost haunts this story."
-D.W. Wilson, author of Once You Break a Knuckle and Ballistics

"This powerful story of loss and healing demonstrates the positive difference one life can make."
-Publishers Weekly
