A MAN WHO FACES THE FUTURE OF EARLY DEMENTIA CONFRONTS THE DEMONS OF HIS PAST..
A MAN WHO FACES THE GRIM FUTURE OF EARLY ONSET DEMENTIA CONFRONTS THE NAGGING DEMONS OF HIS PAST.

Ethan Breen, a widower and middle-aged descendant of Irish immigrants, faces a growing personal crisis. He lives with his college-aged son, Kevin, on his ranch in Texas passed down from his grandfather and father . Ethan's life would appear comfortable, even idyllic. Ethan, however, is dogged by his own, private hell. He realizes that he is suffering the initial symptoms of early onset dementia, a condition that struck both his grandfather and father. He is contemplating killing himself, as his father did.

'It is rare to find a truly original voice like that of Evan Moore, an author who is also a gifted story teller with a gripping, taut tale to tell, a story that reads like nonfiction for it rings so true and is so close to so many of us who are experiencing similar things in our life. It is a particular story, wedded to its time and place, and at the same time contains universal truths, a testament to the human spirit and the gifts of the author.'—Ray Mouton, attorney, author of In God's House.

“The title hints of poetry, perhaps mystery. Indeed long-time newsman and author Evan Moore deftly weaves these elements into Where Late the Sweet Birds Sang. It is the story of a man confronting his future — a future many of us will confront. But it’s also the story of a man looking at his past. You’ll want to skip to the last chapter before you finish. Don’t.”—Mary Moody, editor, photographer.

“Evan Moore's pure writing sweeps us along a road trip of violent, if somewhat colorful, memories and a doubtful future, as he prepares to confront something so awful that most of us just hope it will somehow spare us.”—Ken Hammond, Emeritus Editor of Texas Magazine.
