In this deeply emotional memoir, a longtime ESPN writer reflects on the suicide of his son Max and delves into how their complicated relationship led him to see grief as love.In February 2015, Ivan Maisel received a call that would alter… his life forever: his son Max's car had been found abandoned in a parking next to Lake Ontario. Two months later, Max's body would be found in the lake. There&’d been no note or obvious indication that Max wanted to harm himself; he&’d signed up for a year-long subscription to a dating service; he&’d spent the day he disappeared doing photography work for school. And this uncertainty became part of his father&’s grief. I Keep Trying to Catch His Eye explores with grace, depth, and refinement the tragically transformative reality of losing a child. But it also tells the deeply human and deeply empathetic story of a father&’s relationship with his son, of its complications, and of Max and Ivan&’s struggle—as is the case for so many parents and their children—to connect.I Keep Trying to Catch His Eye is a stunning, poignant exploration of the father and son relationship, of how our tendency to overlook men&’s mental health can have devastating consequences, and how ultimately letting those who grieve do so openly and freely can lead to greater healing.
