Apple, Tree: Writers on Their Parents

Edited by Lise Funderburg

Starred review in Publishers Weekly:

“The old adage, ‘The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree,’ encouraged Funderburg, a University of Pennsylvania lecturer, to explore its truth in this sparkling anthology of essays on the contributors’ parents. . . . These essays, in addition to being resonant in their own right, will also move readers to recollect stories of their own parents.”

Randall Fowler

Review in Providence Magazine:

More Than a Doctrine is an excellent study of the effects and impact of presidential rhetoric. It uses Eisenhower’s presidency to demonstrate the value of truthfulness in international affairs, and the necessity of not being swept away by an orator.”
