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
  • Now that his father is dying, William Bloom realizes he hardly knows him, but the father is more interested in evading his questions than answering them. So Bloom reconstructs his father's life with a series of heroic tales and in the process gets to know him
