Buzz Bissinger's Father's Day

Friday, June 15, 2012

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.

Maybe the "big brother/little brother" relationship wasn't so much because of the 3 minutes btwn. their births as because of the 5 months btwn. when they came home. (I heard about a case like this--twins who came home from the hospital months apart--from a social worker, who said they related more like older/younger brothers than like twins.)
