Craig Ferguson writes for his son

06/29/2006 at 08:00 AM ET

Actor & comedian Craig Ferguson is a jack of all trades. In addition to hosting duties on CBS’s The Late Late Show, he has published a novel, Between the Bridge and the River. Despite his recent success and his well-known work on The Drew Carey Show, which went off the air in 2003, Craig has known his share of hard times. He battled alcoholism, and he and his wife, Sascha, divorced in 2005. But his five-year old son, Milo Hamish Ferguson, has inspired him to keep working– and to write his first book.

Said Craig, "I wrote this book for my son. The inscription is ‘For Milo — a love so big I couldn’t run.’ I’ve been running my whole life. Running into bars, running around the world. But when you have a child, you can’t run. That was a revelation."

I am surprised no one responded to this. That has to be one of the most beautiful sentiments I have ever heard. “A love so big I couldn’t run.” Such a show of love from a man who has been running his whole life.

He is so lovely. His book is so lovely too, because it’s riddled with little bits like this. He’s my hero.
