Parents of sweet and easy preteens, beware!

Here’s a radio essay that ran on WVTF, our local public-radio station, this morning. It’s about a semi-recent trip we took to Watoga State Park in West Virginia — one of our favorite places — and about how the family vacation dynamic shifts when kids hit the teen years.

With thanks to my favorite radio editor/reporter, Connie Stevens, who encouraged me to record, then made me sound real good, then even offered her husband up as my babysitter this morning. The perfect trifecta!!! 🙂

  • The New York Times on “Factory Man”:

    This is Ms. Macy’s first book, but it’s in a class with other runaway debuts like Laura Hillenbrand’s “Seabiscuit” and Katherine Boo’s “Behind the Beautiful Forevers”: These nonfiction narratives are more stirring and dramatic than most novels. And Ms. Macy writes so vigorously that she hooks you instantly. You won’t be putting this book down. — Janet Maslin
