From Publisher's Lunch:
Author of the bestselling Marley & Me John Grogan's new memoir, THE
LONGEST TRIP HOME, has been announced for publication on October 21 by William
Morrow. "From his troublemaking childhood to his courtship of a fiery blond
named Jenny, Grogan writes about how he came to terms with who he is and what he
believes." It's called the "story of a son in the making, and of growing up in a
loving, but comically old-school Catholic family."
Grogan says in the announcement, "Even before Marley & Me was
published, I knew this was the story I wanted to tell next. The Longest Trip
Home is a story very close to my heart."
He'll promote his children's book A Very Marley Christmas, releasing
September 30, while touring for the new memoir, and the film version of Marley
(starring Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston) is set for release on Christmas
