'It's hard to imagine a memoir about moving home to take care of your cancer-stricken Mom and your dying Dad could be fun to read, but Dan Marshall manages to pull it off. Equal parts hilarious and heartbreaking, Home is Burning proves that with family, tragedy always has company' - James Frey
Dan Marshall grew up in a nice home with nice parents in Salt Lake City, Utah, before attending UC Berkeley. After college, Dan worked at a strategic communications public relations firm in Los Angeles. At 25 he left work and returned to Salt Lake to take care of his sick parents. While caring for them, he started writing detailed accounts about many of their weird, sad, funny adventures. Home Is Burning is his first book.
