Andrew M. Greeley has long charmed readers with his chronicles of the crazy O'Malley clan as they are caught up in the rush of American history. Now, Chucky O'Malley and his family enter the Reagan years and a series of surprises tests the family's strength as never before. The death of Chucky's father brings the entire brood together to mourn. But as is always the case wit the O'Malleys, nothing ever goes according to plan. There will be hard days ahead, but with love and faith, the family will bury its dead, dry their tears and make the best of their Golden Years. A native of Chicago, Andrew M. Greeley, is a priest, distinguished sociologist and bestselling author. He has written scores of books -- both fiction and non-fiction -- that often stimulate discussion of neglected issues.
