An Uncomplicated Life summary × 8 Paul Daugherty ë 8 free read review An Uncomplicated Life They refused to allow her to grow up needy “Expect Don’t Accept” became their mantra Little did they know how ready Jillian was to meet their challengePaul tells stories from Jillian’s mischievous childhood and moves to her early adulthood tracing her journey to find happiness and purpose in her adult life sharing endearing anecdotes as well as stories about her inspiring triumphs Having graduated from high school and college Jillian now works to support herself and has met the lo. Disclaimer I received this book for free in a giveaway from Goodreads First Reads I didn t realize until I started reading that this book was written by a sports columnist Paul Daugherty is apparently a longtime writer for the Cincinnati Enuirer and has done some work for Sports Illustrated That s probably why I had never heard of him before can t say I m a huge SI fan SI articles tend to be long human interest stories with sports as their background uite frankly all I want to know is who they think will win the Super Bowl If you want the human interest however there s plenty of it in this bookThis is the true story of Daugherty s second child Jillian who was born with Down Syndrome More accurately perhaps I should say it s the story of all those Jillian touched which encompasses uite a few people the neighbor that Jillian walked in on as he was getting out of the shower the brother that would kiss her on the forehead in front of his buddies before heading out her high school classmates who never uite seemed to know what to do with her the college basketball coach who asked her to be team manager The list goes on Daugherty likes to refer to his daughter s activities as the Jillian show We get the full show hereDaugherty offers a very poetic writing style He s fond of using analogies and often stops to wax philosophical on the difference between being alive and living the fairness of life the nature of relationships etc Perhaps the main strength of his work is that he holds absolutely nothing back we get the good the bad and the ugly He doesn t try to sugarcoat the dismay he felt when he first found out his daughter wasn t perfect He doesn t cover up the times he yelled at his daughter during late night homework sessions Neither does he ever miss a chance to relate how desperately he loves his little girl and how he would do anything for herWell if your greatest strength is also your greatest weakness I think we have a fine case study here From the sheer intimacy of the book I get the distinct impression that it was not written for its readers As it draws to an end and Daugherty deals with the bittersweetness of Jillian s growing independence I begin to feel like I m eavesdropping on something private There are lessons for those of us who are strangers to him as he makes statements about disability and urges us to look past the differences in those around us and see the perfect human inside but they almost seem incidental perhaps even obligatory I can t shake the feeling that he wrote this book for himself maybe for Jillian as well a therapeutic effort as he looks back on the last 20 something yearsThat s certainly not a bad thing I don t fault him at all for wanting to relive his journey up to this point Unfortunately I ended up feeling isolated Have you ever had an elderly relative who wanted to tell you about his late wife who died before you were born I haven t but you know good analogy He s a great guy you wish you could have known his wife you certainly feel for his loss and you know it ll do him good to talk about it But well couldn t he you know maybe cut a few details and get to the point Then of course you feel like a horrible human being for having such selfish thoughts but the fact remains that you re having difficulty relating If that all comes across as overly negative allow me to backtrack a little this is a well written book funny sincere as heck and with a fair amount of emotion But eventually as the pages begin to rack up the emotion begins to give way to a sense that I m an outsider here Daugherty hopes that those of us peeping in will share in his pain and his joy As one who never had the privilege of knowing Jillian I find I can only observe Perhaps I wasn t meant to do
