Thomas E. Call IV shares the fascinating history of the Call family, which spans more than two hundred years, as well as his life story in this memoir. Call, who served in the Army during the Korean War, returned home to start a career with the U.S. Postal Service, starting as a temporary substitute mail carrier in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, in 1958. He’d go on to become national director of delivery for the entire U.S. Postal Service at its headquarters in Washington, D.C., retiring in 1988. He chronicles his successes and triumphs—as well as his domestic relationships—which ranged from heterosexual marriages to marrying a man thirty-four years younger and of a different cultural heritage. Many of Call’s gay friends have told him that they knew who they were sexually at a young age, and they’ve wondered why he “switched teams” so late in life. The saying that “People don’t change, but the times do” may have been true in his case. Any such thoughts were kept in the back of his mind as a young man.
