Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 098484600X, Paperback)What have you learned from your life? What will you take with you when you die? Will it be all the lessons you have learned, all the pain you remember? Romances, milestones, regrets, eras? Through this heartfelt, humorous, inspirational, and oftentimes brutally honest collection of essays, PATHS Humanitarian Writing Award winner H.L. Sudler embarks upon a journey of self-discovery in his quest to define what it truly means to be a patriarch in the wake of his father's death. Searching for answers among tales of love and war, triumph and losses, religious awakening, personal evolution, suicide attempts, and closure surrounding the fragmentation of his family, Sudler poses to himself: How long does it take for a man to become a patriarch? What are the requirements? Need he necessarily be the eldest male member of a family, its core? Or can he merely stand like the first inhabitants of the planet and say I was there; I lived through this...? Examining issues both personal and topical, Sudler begs the reader to gaze deeply into themselves and beneath fears, flaws and anger, and across borders. For him, from man to gentleman and ultimately to patriarch.
