Title: Buddy: How a Rooster Made Me a Family Man by Brian McGrory
Published November 13, 2912; Crown
Book description: "Award-winning journalist Brian McGrory goes head to beak in a battle royale with another male for a top-spot in his home, vying for dominance with the family’s pet rooster."
(My aunt Mary McGrory) .... had broken into political reporting when her editor at the Washington Star (and) sent her to cover the Army-McCarthy hearings on Capitol Hill in the 1950s with the advice : "Write it like a letter to your aunt."Book beginning:
Try as you might, you never forget that first time a rooster announces the dawn of a new day from your very own yard.
In my case, I jerked awake to find myself in a place I had never been, on a bed that wasn't mine, in a room I didn't know. There were windows where there had never been windows, and outside those windows, the first hint of morning light revealed the outline of tall trees I had never seen before.
Buddy, Brian’s nemesis, becomes Buddy, Brian’s inspiration, in this human story of love, acceptance, and change. A tale of finding love in life’s second chapter - and how it means more when you have to fight for it."
