Visit us online at www.1stWorldLibrary.ORG - - ~~~~~~If I speak of myself in this story, it is because I have been deeply involved in its startling events, events doubtless among the most extraordinary which this twentieth century will witness.

This book, or at least the first part of it, takes place in my hometown. Is that awesome or what?
