An autobiography of Ian Morgan Cron, a clergyman in the Episcopal Church.
At the age of sixteen, Ian Morgan Cron was told by his mother that his father, a motion picture executive, also worked for the CIA in Europe. This astonishing revelation, coupled with his father's dark struggles with alcoholism, upended the world of a boy struggling to become a man. Decades later, as he faces his own personal demons, Ian realizes the only way to find peace is to voyage back through a childhood marked by extremes--privilege and hardship, violence and tenderness, truth and deceit--that he's spent years trying to forget. In this surprisingly funny and forgiving memoir, Ian reminds us that no matter how different the pieces may be, in the end we are all cut from the same cloth, stitched by faith into an exquisite quilt of grace. -- From publisher description.

A beautifully written memoir with some cutting moments of how alcoholism and fatherlessness affects children for life. The story has hope, but if you've been affected by alcoholism, you might find it tough to read, or comforting, depending on whether you're ready to experience the pain of growing up again.
