"In this powerful memoir, Calvin Hennick -- a white father trying to prepare his tenderhearted brown son for an often-hostile world -- attempts to come to terms with the scars left by his own painful family history. ONCE MORE TO THE RODEO is a hilarious and deeply moving journey, simultaneously optimistic yet also clear-eyed about the difficulties of fatherhood and race."--Celeste Ng, author of "Little Fires Everywhere"
Calvin Hennick's memoir about a road trip with his son hits all the right notes and touches our American nerves -- on the subjects of fatherhood, racism, and responsibility. The book is beautifully constructed and very moving. I loved it.--Charles Baxter
In the journey of a father and son, Calvin Hennick has written a heartfelt, searching story about America. 'Once More to the Rodeo' is rich with themes of the rural and urban divide, tradition and legacy, the complicated landscapes of race -- but most of all, love. It is a book that will stay with me for a long time.--Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich, author of "The Fact of a Body"
A tender and engrossing travelogue that fully embodies "what it means to be a man and a father."--Starred Review (09/15/2019)
