HERO’S BODY – William Giraldi

Login for pricing

At just forty-seven years old, William Giraldi’s father was killed in a horrific motorcycle accident. Writing here with searing honesty about grief, obsession, shame and identity, he looks back on three generations of men from the blue-collar town of Manville, New Jersey, and tells their stories in tandem: the speed-crazed cult of his father s superbikes , each Sunday spent racing fate along the winding back roads of Pennsylvania; the trauma of a son s ultimate loss, and William s attempts to rebuild a self in the manliest costume he knew.
