The Way Home : When Henry Dunow signed up to coach his seven-year-old son Max's Little League team on Manhattan's Upper West Side, he was flooded with memories of his own father, Moishe, and what was missing from their relationship. Moishe, a Yiddish writer who had recently fled Hitler's Europe, was not a typical postwar dad: He considered playing catch with his son - as well as the other rites of an all-American boyhood - norishkeit, "foolishness." Determined to be a different kind of parent to his first grader, Henry found himself bumbling through a self-test of fatherhood on the scruffy fields of New York's Riverside Park. The Way Home is the affecting and ironic story of Henry's journey of discovery as he watches his relationship with Max evolve over the course of the season, and comes to understand what being a father to his son can teach him about the man who was his own father.
