The Sum and Total of Now. Don Robertson. I don't know if anyone is still reading Robertson's book. It was made into a TV movie with Jimmy (J. Walker at the height of his popularity, and that probably was not a good thing, since the Good Times star was utterly incapable of conveying either the gravity or the hilarity of Robertson's fictional creation. For all I know, that made-for-TV movie might have killed its far superior inspiration.

It is the summer of 1948. Thirteen-year-old Morris Bird III lives in Cleveland with his parents and little sister. His mother aggravates him, his sister is a pain, and his father’s radio personality ego is out of control—as is Morris’s own body when in the presence of girls. But over in Columbus, his grandmother, Alice Anna Bird, is dying. She is the greatest influence on his life and cancer is stealing her away from him.   As his parents and aunts and uncles bicker over his grandmother’s belongings, young Morris distracts himself with the Cleveland Indians’ race for the pennant, Philip Marlowe stories, and the common daydreams of a teenage boy. But in the end, Morris must find courage and strength within to face the harsh reality around him—and the choices he must make . . . because he’s the only one who can.   “Brilliant.”—Stephen King   “Delightful.”—The New York Times Book Review   “Funny, sarcastic, touching, and, yes, nostalgic, this is a novel of character to be enjoyed by all ages.”—Library Journal

Part Three of a tragedy trilogy by Don Robertson about a young boy growing up in post-war Cleveland .
I grew up in the described neighborhood myself and attended the junior and senior high schools described in the stories. The geographical details were exactly as I remembered them. Fortunately I did not have the tragedy although I watched the devastating fire of October 20, 1944 alluded to in the stories. Deja-vu all over again! JCK

I first read this book when I was younger, and I'm delighted to see that it's been reprinted at last. It's the second in a series of books about the same character, at 5, 13, and 17. The first is "The Greatest Thing Since Sliced Bread"' and the third, "The Greatest Thing That Never Happened", all wonderful books.

iT'S NOT QUITE AS INTERESTING AS THE PREVIOUS STORY, "GREATEST THING SINCE SLICED BREAD"
