My English war bride mother was a real penny pincher, but in the early years of their marriage, my parents had to pinch pennies. Not long after my mother arrived in the U.S., she encouraged my father to complete his education. He used the GI Bill to obtain a law degree while she was having four babies and working part time doing such odd jobs as collecting the money out of coin-operated machines in washaterias.

We moved to Galveston when I was four, which is when my father claimed he taught me to read. We lived on the water, swimming, fishing, and crabbing in Offatts Bayou.

Sorry to take so long to answer, Kevin. Personal Problems I won't bore you with.

Yes I can answer your question. That was an early effort at self-publishing. St. Martin's Press, who published the hardback, didn't publish the paperback so I looked around for someone to publish it. I found whoever it was that put out what you have. Forgotten who it was now. It actually was their 2nd effort, the first was even worse. Then I gave it up. I have it as an ebook now and toy with putting it out as a paperback through Amazon, but honestly, I have so many other irons in the fire including writing the 3rd in what was supposed to have been a series back then. There's weren't that many put out. Surprised you found one!(less)

F. Scott Fitzgerald
“He smiled understandingly-much more than understandingly. It was one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life. It faced--or seemed to face--the whole eternal world for an instant, and then concentrated on you with an irresistible prejudice in your favor. It understood you just as far as you wanted to be understood, believed in you as you would like to believe in yourself, and assured you that it had precisely the impression of you that, at your best, you hoped to convey.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
