Public Apology

In Which a Man Grapples With a Lifetime of Regret, One Incident at a Time

Dave Bry is sorry. Very sorry. He’s sorry to Wendy Metzger for singing the last verse of “Stairway to Heaven” into her ear while slow dancing in junior high school. He’s sorry to Judy and Michael Gailhouse for letting their children watch The Amityville Horror when he babysat them. And he’s sorry–especially, truly–that he didn’t hear his cancer-ridden father call out for help one fateful afternoon.

Things are different now. Dave’s become a dad, too, and he’s discovered a new compassion for the complicated man who raised him. And maybe if his 17-year-old self could meet his current self, he’d think twice before throwing beer cans on Jon Bon Jovi’s lawn. Dave’s apologies are at turns hysterically funny and profoundly moving, ultimately adding up to a deeply human, poignant and likable portrait of a man trying to come to grips with his past.
