Overview

DETOURS BLURB

Detours, the autobiography of Henry Southwick Maxfield 1923 - ? is a collection of true stories, told chronologically, written not only for my heirs but primarily as a personal discovery.
Engaging in the ongoing, intriguing question as to what extent genealogy, environment and experience have shaped me. It is a process of value to everyone to better understand not only me but those would be autobiographers. It continues to be an interesting process and I recommend it.
My self imposed rules are to tell the truth based on vivid memories and adjusting the narrations to the different ages i.e at the age of ten to remember as a ten year old, without reference to the known future. I have tried not to get ahead of myself – not easy to do.
My chief assets are my almost total, detailed recall and as a writer and author of 7 published books, principally known as a storyteller and satirist.
Legacy of a Spy, A Dangerous Man, (filmed as The Double Man starring Yul Brynner) Another Spring, The Weltschmerz Plan, Justice Justice, by Henry S. Maxfield (the proper way to identify it), The Morland Syndrome, To The Survivors and Detours Book I

Laughter is good. Laughing at yourself is even better.
I continue to have a lust for life. I almost always did everything the hard way. My course has never been easy or smooth. It seems inevitable for Henry Southwick Maxfield.
