Thomas E. Call IV shares the fascinating history of the Call family, which spans more than two hundred years, as well as his life story in this memoir. Call, who served in the Army during the Korean War, returned home to start a career with the U.S. Postal Service, starting as a temporary substitute mail carrier in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, in 1958. He’d go on to become national director of delivery for the entire U.S. Postal Service at its headquarters in Washington, D.C., retiring in 1988. He chronicles his successes and triumphs—as well as his domestic relationships—which ranged from heterosexual marriages to marrying a man thirty-four years younger and of a different cultural heritage. Many of Call’s gay friends have told him that they knew who they were sexually at a young age, and they’ve wondered why he “switched teams” so late in life. The saying that “People don’t change, but the times do” may have been true in his case. Any such thoughts were kept in the back of his mind as a young man.

Author Z admits his experiences have taught him to face every challenge head-on; fearing nothing, because it is put there to teach you something so you can move on to the next phase of your life. If you ignore it, you’re just spinning your wheels. In Missing the Laughter, he explores his life and the challenges he faced head-on. In this memoir, he narrates the details of his eleven-year relationship with Jackson—from their first meeting to their break up and in between. Against the backdrop of the abuse he endured as a child and his battle with a terminal illness, Z shares his emotions and feelings as they years passed by. He intertwines stories of his family history with the present-day to make meaning of his life. Missing the Laughter offers insight into one Italian-American man raised in Pennsylvania as he faces his demons and the consequences of his decisions.

Drawing from more than 25 years of literary know-how and modeled after a 15-week college course, this manual provides guidance for seekers wishing to delve further into self-exploration through writing. Extending beyond the idea that memoir writing intends to put past events into a more understandable current perspective, the guide maintains that keeping a document of one’s life is actually the basis of a psychic process called “soul work,” which manifests as a desire to experience the state of being alive to the fullest. This unusual approach to memoir writing aims to generate more honest and genuine results that come from inner needs rather than outer expectations. Intended to clarify a writer’s developmental path, this resource emphasizes the importance of self-awareness and the need for dealing with difficult material that actually alters the writer in the process, resulting in significant growth of the soul.
