Snapshots of My Father, John Silber
by Rachel Devlin
Foreword by Lance Morrow
“Rachel Silber Devlin’s fine portrait of her father is filled with such illuminating private detail, with stories that would have been unavailable to anyone who had not been there for all of those years—anyone who was not John Silber’s child. Her rendering has a transcendent objectivity and clarity and understanding that could only come from having known him as she did. Here are the Texas roots, the antecedents—the cultural and family background, the accumulation of intimate and accidental details, the stories.”
—LANCE MORROW, from the Foreword.
About the Author
Author Rachel Silber Devlin is one of John Silber’s six daughters. As a wife, a mother, and a homemaker, she always had a strong sense of who she was apart from any labels.
Devlin says that she sometimes feels like she and her dad grew up together because she knew him so well from a time when he was young and still learning how to make his way in the world.
She divides her time between her homes in Texas and Massachusetts, the states where her children and grandchildren live.
