Authors on the Air Host Pam Stack welcomes BOB BRODY to the studio. Bob Brody is a media strategist and editorial specialist with Powell Tate, a division of Weber Shandwick. He is the author of the upcoming memoir, Playing Catch with Strangers: A Family Guy (Reluctantly) Comes Of Age. From Bob: I confess: I’ve never cheated on my wife, abused drugs, run with a gang, attempted suicide or killed anyone. But that’s okay. I’ve written a memoir anyway. Playing Catch with Strangers: A Family Guy (Reluctantly) Comes of Age – out from Heliotrope Books on June 18 (Father’s Day) – celebrates my occasional successes, laments my frequent failures, and chronicles my ongoing struggle to attain something approximating adulthood. Dan Rather, former CBS anchor, calls the book “a gem . . . filled with insights, wit, pithy observations, common sense and neighborly decency.” Playing Catch with Strangers is about my often tormented, doubly disabled mother; my gentle-hearted, distant, workaholic father; my doting but domineering maternal grandmother; my heroically generous-spirited mother-in-law; my ever-forbearing wife; my much-blessed son and daughter; and my friends through thick and thin.
