O'L J My Special Friend

Fantasy, facts and our fantastically frantic families:
a novella of mostly true lives.

• by Hilton McCabe


This historical novel about my relatives is substantively true and creatively constructed to protect the guilty, the innocent and suspicious bystanders. Authorship freedom is generously granted to me by yours truly.

All names of people are fictional, and some real events are co-mingled to shield, as with an Eden-like fig leaf, my real life bloodline kinfolks.

Though 76.53-percent factual, the forthcoming historical accounts represent a tiny glimpse into many dozens of complex lives. It is hoped that we all take the contents lightly, seriously, entertainingly, thoughtfully, humbly, tolerantly and carefully. It’s my plea that the relatives won’t come after my hide for these revelations. That about covers it.

Good readin. Yes, “readin.” The author leaves out the “g” sound and spellin in words for his narrative to remind readers that he is the happy owner of limited education, at least in his role as writer of this here book.

The time I begin writin about is back in the 1930's or so and goes on from there. Now you can read our lives as based on my rememberins.
