Summary:
Recounts the author's efforts to rebuild in the face of a failing literary career and his wife's abandonment for another man, describing how his love for his young son inspired the confrontation of his own painful childhood memories.
When he was three, Anastas found himself in his mother's fringe-therapy group in Massachusetts, a sign around his neck: Too Good to Be True. The phrase haunted him through his life. This is his deeply moving memoir of fathers and sons, crushing debt and infidelity-- and the first, cautious steps taken toward piecing a life back together.
