Email a Friend

Buzz Bissinger, best-selling author of Friday Night Lights and Three Nights in August, talks about his new memoir, Father’s Day: A Journey into the Mind and Heart of My Extraordinary Son. His twin sons were born three minutes apart and are extremely different—Gerry is a graduate student at Penn, while Zach has spent his life attending special schools, challenged by serious intellectual deficits. Bissinger shares revelations about his own parents, fatherhood, and the price of ambition and its effect on his twins.
