Why do I Love these People? Summary

Why do I Love these People? by Po Bronson

There's the family you come from, and the family you create. Po Bronson's international bestseller "What Should I Do With My Life?" inspired a generation. For this remarkable new book, he has travelled the world in search of what it means to be part of family life. Over three years, Po Bronson collected the experiences of more than seven hundred people, from families multi-cultural and multi-generational. Through the nineteen individual stories told here, he begins to decode the enigma of the thing we call 'family'. This book tells of ordinary people who have rebuilt their loves in the face of hardship: an Indian woman flees her abusive father and the marriage into which he forced her; a Baptist in the Ozark mountains tracks down the thirteen-year-old son he abandoned at birth; a father returns to the rice village in China where a precious secret lies hidden in the wall of his childhood home; a Protestant single mother of three and a divorced Catholic man in Belfast evoke the story of Romeo and Juliet. What they have in common, we discover, is resilience. Through storytelling that is both artful and wise, Po Bronson has created a moving and inspiring narrative about the institution which is central to all our lives.
