Hunting for the Plot
Hunting for the Plot:
A Son’s Search for His Family’s Untold Stories
by Herbert Knapp

In Hunting for the Plot, Herbert Knapp shows how the lives of previous generations influence those that come after, often in unexpected and unintended ways.

The central characters are his parents, whose long lives coincided with the rise of the American middle class. Their story demonstrates how that aspect of American social history impacted their aspirations, their behavior, and their legacy, and how they finally achieved the American dream.
