Full of wisdom and honesty, Not Quite an Ordinary Life shares the
rather extraordinary life of J. David Joyce, a common man who took
the common man's journey through life.
One of eight children born to an Irish Catholic housepainter and
his wife, Joyce grew up in the midst of poverty in a small New York
town. In his youth, he endured (and survived) Catholic school,
dealt with his father's addiction to morphine, and learned the
importance of hard work. As an adult, he served a tour of duty in
Vietnam, suffered through financial difficulties, and mourned the
death of his only son. Yet through it all, Joyce continued to
believe in a better life for himself and his family. His middle
class success included a solid marriage, wonderful children,
advanced education, and worldwide travel. He enjoyed a twenty-year
career in the US Air Force working in foreign intelligence
collection and analysis, as well as being a counselor to veterans.
In later years, he became an IRS agent and finished his working
life as an accountant.
Rich with detail and brimming with emotion, Not Quite an
Ordinary Life reveals one man's strength and courage against the
odds and his remarkable zest in pursuing the American dream.
