|Plot Summary of Maybe (Maybe Not): Second Thoughts From a Secret Life|
|"It's easy to make fun of Fulghum, but beneath the apparent simplicity of his stories is not only deep wisdom but pain. In this, his fourth book, along with his usual tales of nice people and great dogs and folk wisdom are accounts of the time this former cowboy, art professor, and minister attempted suicide, his household's anti-Christmas crusade, and the time he was stabbed in a faculty meeting. After a visit to Donald Trump's Taj Mahal in Atlantic City he muses on the nature of gambling, he celebrates a New Year in Crete and considers the richer meaning of the phrase "making love," and there's a fabulous story about conducting the choral movement of Beethoven's Ninth with a symphony that was in deep trouble."
David Loftus, Resident Scholar
