Before Marley

Yesterday, Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, announced that John Grogan, author of Marley & Me, is at work on a memoir of his years before Marley, called The Longest Trip Home, to be pubbed in October.

The release describes the book as,

The powerful, often hilarious story of a son in the making, and of growing up in a loving, but comically old-school Catholic family. From his troublemaking childhood to his courtship of a fiery blonde named Jenny, Grogan writes about how he came to terms with who he is and what he believes.

The AP did a story which was picked up in several newspapers, including USA Today.
