Just started reading 700 Sundays, written by Billy Crystal. I have always thought he was funny. The book’s name comes from the fact that he approximately spent 700 sundays with his father since his father passed away when he was 15. It is funny but touchy too. I have not seen the play but book is great.
His grandmother who immigrated from Russia lived in Grand Rapids, Michigan for a while before they moved to New York. When Billy Crystal asked her grandmother why she chose Grand Rapids, she said “because Train stopped there”. I thought it was very interesting answer. I guess, sometimes it is not about making choices but going with the flow.
