“As he did in Marley, Grogan makes readers feel they have a seat at the family dinner table….4 stars.” —People   John Grogan, author of the phenomenal #1 New York Times bestseller, Marley & Me, once again takes readers into his past, his memories, and his heart in The Longest Trip Home—a funny and poignant memoir of faith, family, and identity. A New York Times bestseller in its own right, The Longest Trip Home has earned glowing accolades from the critics (“Genuinely heartrending,” —New York Times “Wry and witty,” —Washington Post; “Entertaining, funny, and, best of all, always honest at its core,” —St. Louis Post-Dispatch). And, just as Marley & Me was more than simply “a dog book,” John Grogan’s Longest Trip is much, much more than your typical story of a boy’s coming-of-age.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Every now and then a memoir is so well written that readers are able to find elements of their own life story in the chronicle of the writer’s life. So it is with this eloquent, tender, witty memoir.” Doris Kearns Goodwin, Pulitzer Prize–winning author
The Longest Trip Home takes Mr. Grogan from a boyhood as Mom’s ‘little daffodil’ into the shadow of somber, adult grief. And it honors his parents, perhaps not in the way they would have chosen but in a way that suits his talents: by bringing them to life on the page. He does what he did with Marley. His loss becomes our loss too.” New York Times
“As he did in Marley, Grogan makes readers feel they have a seat at the family dinner table. He’s now a nonpracticing Catholic, but here-to wonderful effect-he confesses all.” People
“Wry and witty…full-hearted and worthy.” Washington Post
“Grogan provides heartfelt and evocative narration to his touching coming-of-age memoir. His speaking style may not necessarily convey polish, but his friendly lilt and natural enunciation perfectly fits the essence of the autobiographical material. Grogan’s vivid anecdotes of Catholic schoolboy mischief…come to life with wistful charm.” Publishers Weekly
