PARENTS: DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME Greg Fitzsimmons has made a lot of what appear to be bad decisions. It's what he was raised to do. Most parents would hide or destroy any evidence so clearly demonstrating their child's failures, but - lucky for us - Greg Fitzsimmons's family has preserved each mistake in its original envelope like a trophy in a case, lest he ever forget where he came from. Dear Mrs. Fitzsimmons is Greg's life, told through this cavalcade of disciplinary letters, incident reports, and newspaper clippings that his parents received from teachers and school officials. Greg picks up where his parents left off with his own collection of letters received during college and throughout his successful career as a writer, producer, and stand-up comic. Revealing the larger story of how Greg's distinctly dysfunctional Irish-American family bred him to blindly challenge anyone, anytime, anywhere, over anything, Dear Mrs. Fitzsimmons comes full circle to show that the Fitzsimmons torch has been passed on proudly to a new generation.
Funny and inspiring!
This is a really great audiobook, full of comedy, honesty, and the old fashioned American story of someone trying to do the best they can with the cards they've been dealt. Greg's telling of his life story is a pleasure to listen to, especially in a day and age when we all take ourselves (and our life's traumas) too seriously. Parents (and people who have parents) will definitely appreciate his honest (and epic) battles with Nature and Nurture.
Greg's nice, the book's nice, buy the book and babbaboey to everyone!!!!
Totally worth it.
I'm a fan of Greg's podcast and heard that he had a book. Not being one to read I jumped at the chance to get Dear Mrs. Fitzsimmons in audiobook form. Granted it took me a few years to buy it but it was well worth the wait.
