That's about the best way I can describe Thirty Rooms To Hide In. It's the story of growing up with my five brothers in a big house in Minnesota. Yet even with winters raging outside and our father raging within, our mother's protection allowed us to have a wildly fun, thoroughly dysfunc-tional time growing up in the 1950s and ‘60s.
I started writing this book in 1992, after the birth of my first son. I wanted him to know what it had been like for me. At first I had trouble deciding whether the book was about my mother or my father. For awhile I thought it was about growing up in the ‘50s and ‘60s; about Marvel comics and the Beatles. And some days it was just about the house; about its loneliness in deep winter, its quiet in high summer. Now after 12 years of working on the manuscript, I’m satisfied I’ve figured which one it is.
