The French philosopher Albert Camus, no unbridled optimist, said that not everything can be summed up in negativity and despair. Going Home is the story of my hometown and a generation of onion farmers, two world-boxing champions, a particular brand of humor, and a community that has remained home no matter where I wandered these past seventy years.  It’s the touching story of family, friendship and football.  It’s about a past that’s largely gone, but never forgotten.  It’s about secrets, apology and forgiveness.  Most of all its my journey home, after being away many years.
