I found this book to be totally absorbing from beginning to end. I suppose it helped me to be both a fan of McKuen and also a genealogist, but I was totally riveted to the story of McKuen's search for his biological roots. Specifics are given of each stage of his attempts at finding his true father, the people who helped him along the way, the bureaucratic difficulties which were to be encountered, the uncertainties and hypotheses made during the search, and perhaps most importantly the reasons for his need for the answers to questions which had plagued him from the outset.

I strongly recommend this book to anyone who may fall into either of the categories mentioned above, and for anyone who either believes or does not believe that an individual has the right to locate their birth parent in these days of privacy. (Although the book was written prior to most rights having become even more difficult under most circumstances).

I ran into his stepfather, Bill Hooper, in Fallon, Nevada, in 1980. His daughter from another wife told me about Rod McKuen back then. So when I read about Rod's passing, I had to get his book. Great read!

This book is a clear, unembellished recounting of the points that lead the author to resolve a major question in his life. I read it in a single sitting and felt at the end that I both knew and liked the man who told me his story. His writing is understated, not self-conscious at all. There are some very beautiful ideas expressed in this book.
