Writing A Book With Dad, After His Funeral


It's not every day we read a co-memoir.  Especially when such a book is published after the death of one of the co-authors. 

But Ashland resident Josh Gross got a packet of his father's papers at his father's funeral. 

And that led to the book appropriately titled The Funeral Papers, detailing the often strained and ultimately estranged relationship between Josh and Arnie Gross.  Josh talks about what he found in his father's papers, and how he constructed their joint project.
