Floating: What I Found When I Went Looking For My Father started, of course, with my father’s death in 1984 when he was 62 years old – at the time, I was a sophomore at Duke University and my mother and I really – to be honest – just kind of tried and survive that time and didn’t really look back. Or into what had happened to me.
When my mother then died in 2011, I did start to look more into what had happened to my father – and also thanks to a timely meal in Cape Town, South Africa with my dear friends Tamsin Smith and Tina Lutz, I decided to head out on the journey.
I wrote as I went – all the older posts on this blog were written as I traveled – and then I went through the long process of turning it into a readable book – and then having that book published as I wanted it to be.
In March 2017, the limited edition hardcover will be released – it will be an edition of 999 signed and numbered copies – each copy will be $75 with $25 going towards one of thre nonprofits in Burma – with the buyer making the choice.
