Family can be a strange thing. Both pieces by Sunny Bleckinger on today's show, one fiction and non-fiction, explore the complicated feelings that go hand in hand with having a complicated family.
In the non-fiction piece he recounts meeting his father after being adopted and out of all contact for 20 years. In addition to their wobbly newfound relationship is the mystery of his mother, a person no one has seen since she kidnapped Sunny and his sister.
Conversation Topics: writing, Amsterdam, literature, short stories, parenthood, kids, family, tennis, surrealism, massage therapy.
