Some brief overview of this book

In this essay collection, now with a new introduction by Ann Patchett, Geoffrey Wolff recounts the moral (and sometimes immoral) education of a writer, friend, husband, and father. He shows us his wildly dysfunctional childhood Christmases—presided over by his con-man father—then shifts to his brash, short-lived teaching career in Istanbul. With dazzling literary agility, Wolff guides us through the surprising, invaluable turns that shaped his path: his victory over the chaos of drink, his open-heart surgery, his life-affirming surrender to the slopes of the Matterhorn, and his transcendent love of family. Long considered a classic, now expanded and back in print after two decades, A Day at the Beach shares Wolffs spirited, elegant, and deeply felt observations on an extraordinary life.

From the acclaimed author of The Duke of Deception and The Final Club comes a volume of elegant, spirited, and deeply felt autobiographical essays about the moral—and immoral—education of a writer, friend, father, and husband. A memoir of uncommon grace and self-deprecating charm. . . .—Newsday.
