April Fool's Day is controversial, painful and heartbreaking, yet has a gentle humor. It is also life-affirming and, above all, a testimony to the incredible regenerative strength of love: how when we confront our worst, we can become our best. This tragic yet uplifting story will change the way you think. From the author of The Power of One.

"April Fool's Day is one of those rare, wholly beautiful books that lets life speak for itself." (The Australian)
A very sad story of Damon but also a story about strength and courage. Damon went through so much but enjoyed life.
Never a fan of the author, the many many recommendations for this story drove me to download it.
I remain definitely not a fan of the author, unable to continue listening to such self indulgent rambling past the halfway mark. The repetition, the unspeakably banal dialogue......it was DREADFUL.
With an intelligent editor it could have been culled to about 30% and been a touching and engaging read/listen.
