Wayne Luckmann looks back on growing up in Milwaukee’s South Side during the 1930s and 1940s, sharing hard-fought lessons from his childhood and beyond in this touching memoir.

In A Stirring of the Air, a Shifting of the Light, Luckmann celebrates his family, childhood friends, and many others who have played meaningful roles in his life.

His recollections include “Margaret and Her Children” in which he shares the rich heritage of his mother’s European family who immigrated to America at the start of the last century. Their deep, abiding love—often unexpressed—help turn him into the man he ultimately becomes.

In “My Father’s Keeper,” he explores his father’s side of the family, showing how various relatives influenced his relationship with his dad. This side of the family helps shape his attitudes, perceptions, and relationships with others, especially his son.

These recollections seek to preserve moments and memories of things past that were rich in flesh and blood and bone. Although they are now only flickering neural images, they made Luckmann who he is, and they have profound meaning for anyone seeking a bridge to the past and an understanding of self.
