It’s About Time (Milions of Copies Sold for Dad), by Mark Connor. Cover art by Eric C. Keast

It’s About Time (Millions of Copies Sold for Dad) is a saga wrapped around a package of poems, guarded by angels. With a narrative style that reads like a novel, contains a collection of poetry, and shares an autobiography, Mark Connor guides us through a journey of love, family, and life that is ours as much as his own, peaking at the point of merger of difference and unity. Following him from memory to memory, we feel the eyes upon us, defeat the empire of fear, embrace the kingdom of love, and find ten minutes a day to be  grateful. All the while, we celebrate the city of Saint Paul (with a friendly nod to Minneapolis), experience Irish influence in neighborhood life, rooted in Catholic cohesion, embraced by Indigenous America in the Medicine Wheel. We box the perfect metaphor with future world champions, love beauty in a moment of ambivalence, work on a fishing boat in Southeast Alaska, comfort a child in an American Indian shelter for kids, and guard American Indian buildings, with guns, in riots. Through it all, we honor Dad, mourning his death and remembering his love, sharing a story written for America, valuing fatherhood, defending family,
encouraging marriage, and providing hope.

================

Mark Connor writes about boxing and the city of Saint Paul better than anyone. He’s an inspiration for me. He’s a valuable resource I steal from every chance I get.
