Remember Me Like This: A Novel by Bret Anthony Johnston http://smile.amazon.com/dp/1400062128/ref=cm_sw_r_pi_dp_VmO0tb0ZQ123Z6N5

Remember Me Like This by Bret Anthony Johnston. A family shattered by the abduction of an older son endures the fallout of four nightmarish years when he is found alive and returned to them badly traumatized.

Novelist Alex Kotlowitz, originally a New Yorker, traveled to Chicago in search of a story. What he found was much more -- a city of people who he feels characterize the "real" in America. It's a place where he has now lived for 20 years (and counting). He interweaves history, anecdote and biography in this brief, street-level view of the city and its everyday people.

"Everybody finds a place in Chicago. People are taken for who they are, not for what they have or haven't achieved.It's America's original pioneer town.Also, Kotlowitz is a writer in residence at my alma mater.
