. . . from an Author's Life
Acclaimed author Jon Hassler begins his memoir, Good People, with the words "I had the great fortune to be reared in a cocoon of goodness." In this nostalgic look at the virtue of goodness, Jon Hassler introduces us to real and fictional people who have played significant roles in his life. Fans of Hassler and his work will no doubt delight in these sketches of the many individuals who formed his concept of goodness, including his parents, boyhood friends, relatives, colleagues, and even the characters he created in his many years as a writer. Through this book, we begin to see more clearly how each of us is formed, in large part, by the virtues of people who surround our own lives.
