Overview:

Father's Day :

Buzz Bissinger's twins were born three minutes - and a world - apart. Gerry, the older one, is a graduate student preparing to become a teacher. His brother Zach has spent his life attending special schools. He is a savant, challenged by serious intellectual deficits but also blessed with rare talents: an astonishing memory, a dazzling knack for navigation, and a reflexive honesty that can make him both socially awkward and surprisingly wise.

One summer, striving to understand the 24-year-old son who remains, in many ways, a mystery, Buzz convinces Zach to join him on a cross-country road trip. As father and son journey from Philadelphia to Los Angeles, revisiting all the places they have lived together, Buzz discovers the sturdy logic that fuels Zach's unique worldview.

Father's Day is a raw, powerful account of this experience, and a universal tale of the bond between parents and children.
