About the Author

James Thomas Thornburgh, MD, is a seventy-two-year-old psychiatrist who, after forty years in the public and private sectors, still enjoys working full time and has no desire to retire. He graduated from Amherst College in Massachusetts in 1963 and went on to the Ohio State Medical College, then to Emory University in Atlanta, for his internship and residency.

Thornburgh works in nonprofit inner-city mental health clinics in Washington, DC, that serve the financially disadvantaged and seriously mentally ill, as well as with a program in Virginia that makes home visits and provides services to help patients stay healthy.

The father of four grown children and grandfather to five, he is happily married to his wife, Gail, a PhD psychologist who works with children and their parents.

In his memoir, he narrates his adventures as a boy from ages four through twelve during the 1940s and early 1950s in rural Ohio.
