More About This Book

Overview

If America enjoyed the bestseller about SH*T someone's dad said, then they'll love Bob Cairns' Stories I Couldn't Tell Until My Mother Died. The stories here run from laugh-out-loud funny to poignant memories that will bring readers to tears.

A number of Cairns' remembrances from this incredible gathering come with the blessings of his editors at Sports Illustrated, TV Guide, Field & Stream and other national magazines. But more than 100 are first-time, never-before-told originals, with a number wrapped in the name recognition of high-profile celebrities-Steve Allen-("Silly Today Thanks To Steve and Tonight"); Martin and Lewis ("Brush With Greatness"); Tom Arnold ("Tom, Terry and Tim"); John Denver ("How I Pissed off John Denver"); Bill Cowher ("Planes, Trains and Mopeds"); Richard Simmons; ("No Pants No Gain"); Bob Costas ("Crossword Costas"); Jim Valvano ("V&Me") and Rudy ("The Making of Rudy").

Cairns says that his mother claimed that the gathering herein began July 6, 1943. "I was born breech and there was rarely a day that went by that my mother didn't claim that was the reason that I tended to get so many of my tales backwards!" Julia (who lived to the ripe old age of 96) had a wonderful sense of humor. And the fact that she's pictured here on the book's cover holding a crock? Well, her son's guess is that her reaction would be, "Hooray for irony!"
Bob Cairns wrote for NC State University for 34 years. His stories have appeared in numerous national magazines. His books include the novel, The Comeback Kids, St. Martin's Press; PEN MEN "Baseball's Greatest Bullpen Stories Told By The Men Who Brought The Game Relief," St. Martin's Press; and V&Me "Everybody's Favorite Jim Valvano Story," Alexander Books.
