Guys with masters degrees in creative writing don't typically live in mansions. Unless, of course, the mansion is falling down and sells for just 65-thousand dollars, and the guy with the degree is David Giffels. Twelve years ago, Giffels and his wife moved their growing family into a crumbling relic and began to kick out the raccoons and the wisteria in the attic. The Beacon Journal columnist tells the story--part This Old House, very little Father Knows Best, very enjoyably written--in his new book All the Way Home: Building a Family in a Falling Down House. Monday morning at 9 o'clock, we bring you a special Labor Day rebroadcast of our conversation with David Giffels.
