Books: The middle-American way of death
(Page 2 - Previous Page)"Every family is a ghost story," a narrator tells us at the start of "For One More Day," and no doubt Albom has some specters of his own. The novel ends, like his last two books, with a photo, this one of Albom's own mother Rhoda, smiling beneath a black bouffant, her full story waiting to be told. Maybe it's time to commit, Mitch: Dig a little deeper, or drop the shovel.
