Summary
In his prime, Edward Bloom was an extraordinary man. He could outrun anybody. He never missed a day of school. He saved lives and tamed giants. Animals loved him, people loved him, women loved him. He knew more jokes than any man alive. At least that's what he told his son, William. But now Edward Bloom is dying, and William wants desperately to know the truth about his elusive father —this indefatigable teller of tall tales—before it's too late. So, using the few facts he knows, William re-creates Edward's life in a series of legends and myths—hilarious and wrenching, tender and outrageous—through which he begins to understand his father's great feats, and his great failings
Summary
When his attempts to get to know his dying father fail, William Bloom makes up stories that recreate his father's life in heroic proportions
