Father's Day:A Journey into the Mind & Heart of My Extraordinary Son

Buzz Bissinger

Bissinger’s twin sons, Gerry and Zach, were born prematurely three minutes apart. Gerry left the hospital able to breathe on his own, while Zach struggled to breathe and survive. The lack of oxygen during delivery caused permanent brain damage, leaving loveable Zach with the IQ of a 9-year-old and an extraordinary memory. When Zach turned 24, Bissinger proposed a road trip with him, and the two began a journey across the country. Along the way, Bissinger shares the pains and pleasures of being a father to a child facing challenges in this honest, heartfelt memoir from the bestselling author of Friday Night Lights (2004).
