Overview

43 A.A. Ballads & Story Poems by Robert E Maloney

From the memories of a 90 year old alcoholic, (long sober, but still an alcoholic), first "diagnosed" by a US Army Medical Colonel while serving in the US Army in Germany, 1947. His earliest association with Alcoholics Anonymous came in 1958, and from that day to this he has attended meetings, sponsored several fellow alcoholics and been privy to hundreds of stories that seldom get heard outside of an AA meeting. Some are tragic, some are comic, all are poignant.
Author and Poet Robert E. Maloney says, it is possible, but hardly probable, that some 90 year old, somewhere, will recognize his, or her, story, even though the names and locations have been changed. I hope so. In a few cases like my decease wives who were both in Al-Anon, the names have not been changed.
These poetic snapshots of the unforgettable people you'd like to have known, back in the day, will let you experience the many friends he made throughout the years. His hope is, that readers who may have a drinking problem, will understand that the "Life of an Alcoholic" can be as productive as anybody else. All one must do is, "Don't Drink and Go to Meetings." Had it nor been for AA, his own efforts in life would surely have been a total waste, and the odds of making his 91st birthday the year this book was published, would have been slim.
R.E. Maloney also published Lost in Burma and will be publishing his memoir late 2015.
