On August 20, 2021, as usual and per subscription, CBC Books Newsletter arrived to my mailbox. Among the list of 57 recommended Canadian nonfictions was Three Funerals for My Father. I told myself, my Father 'spirit is with the book. Therefore, he will guide it to where he wants it to be.
Years ago, I subscribed to CBC Books to receive information about their recommended books. When I started to write, I could not help but dream that my book would be listed in CBC Books someday. On August 2, 2021, I happened to google my name, and to my astonishment, Three Funerals for My Father is listed in CBC Books, even before the book is available. I was both happy and sad, thinking of my Father. Even in his absence from this world, he was still an essential part of what made my dream come true.
