Before I Forget: A Boyhood of Little Drama by Tom Turkington
Tom Turkington grew up in a small Cape cod town in mid-century, middle-class America. "Before I Forget" accurately recalls and vigorously explores those times and the author's place within them. This is far more than a narrative of a moment in history. With thoughtful insight and good-humored reflection, Mr. Turkington examines closely the events and individuals that shaped his life. What started out as a simple chronicle of memorable moments in his boyhood became an affectionately rendered tale of growing up, wherein we will find our own moments, our own histories and ourselves.
Before I Forget is a wonderful book about Tom Turkington's life, from a young boy to an adult. This book is simply Tom telling his life story, his memories. There are moments of humor and just plain wonderfully average days.
I love reading books that give you glimpse into someone's life. It makes you look back on your own life and take a trip down memory lane. Thank you, Tom, for letting us peek into your 'boyhood of little drama.'
