MacDONALD, Howard R. BRAD Abroad : An Almost Functional Family Visits the Old World. (Chester, NS : Bryher Publications Inc., 2010). First Printing. Pp (4),1-402,(2). 8vo (152 x 228 mm), art-illustrated white cardcovers, lettered in red, orange & black. Howard R. MacDonald (b. 1938) a retired high school teacher, was living in Dartmouth at the time of publication. "BRAD Abroad is literary fiction for the adventurous reader. With crisp humour, readers will be entertained by this almost true, yet unforgettably heartwarming and often hilarious account of one family’s historical trek across Europeand the unexpected ‘problems’ they encounter with their youngest child , B rad. Traumatized at an early age, Brad developed ‘hyper-precocious epilepsitosia’, a Turette’s like syndrome that often causes incoherent, pathologically excessive talking. As Howard and Esther MacDonald, and three of their eight children, journey across the ‘Old World’, they discover not only the cultural and historic beauty of the land, but also the true wonderment of each other. Readers will fall in love with this quirky Nova Scotian family, witnessing their unprecedented caring and forgiveness for each other as theydeal with issues ranging from atheism and religious faith and the uncertai nty and emotional upheaval of Alzheimer’s disease to the bewilderment and amazement of true miracles. And while many endings in our journey as human beings leave us asking why. BRAD Abroad shows us that with family, anything is possible. We leave it up to you to decide what is fact and what is fiction." - (from the back cover). Very good. Signed, with inscription, by the author. 12.00
