Just over a year ago, our friend Doug Krupka tragically died from gastric cancer at age 35. He left behind his wife, Erin, and his two young children, Nikolas (now age 9) and Mara (age 6). We've turned Doug’s "Dispatches from Germany" (his series of e-mails written while the Krupka family lived in Bonn) into this book. 200+ pages, with some great photos, incredible memories, and insightful and hilarious adventures. This book collects those wonderful stories (and his spirit) for us and the Krupkas, and all of the proceeds (100%!) will go to a college fund for the Krupka children. This is a perfect way for you to remember Doug, to celebrate his life, and to contribute to a memorial fund for Doug. Hardbound copies are perfect for the coffee table, bathroom, or nightstand. The "Dispatches" are hilarious even to strangers. They make great presents for birthday, Christmas, Labor Day, or whatever. Anyone who likes to talk about parenting, dogs, foreigners, poop, history, or culture will enjoy it.
