About the Author

I was born a bastard, and over the next sixty-five years I lived up to the reputation. I found it best to do so as a writer by telling the truth and letting the chips fall were they may. Was this a reputation earned, or was it a red badge of courage for being honest to the person I had become. This book is about honesty and there is no hiding from the hideous truth about what the United States Government did to the great Indian nations.

A sharp-edged, psychological surveillance Feminists, women in general and fair-minded men might be grinding their teeth while reading this novel. A reader must wonder if the persistence of patriarchy has changed significantly since the time setting of this work in about the 1920’s or 30’s. The writer spins a tale of relationship through the voice of an intense, talented, accomplished and almost mythical attorney who is more or less accidentally merged into association with a young secretary. How he views her and the class to which she belongs shows great insight into the mindset of men of the period when the novel takes place. The evolution of the relationship between the lawyer and the typist is the crux of the story and while this may seem simplistic for a plot, nothing could be less true. Personalities are exquisitely painted. Every page helps the reader better know each character’s spirit through luminous use of phrases and million dollar adjectives that may make one ask, “How’d he think of that?” The reader is escorted on a riveting and tempestuous journey through the entrancing mind of the attorney, Frederick Norman. One cannot help, while progressing through the chapters, entertaining a desire to cheer for Norman, challenge Norman, blame Norman, warn Norman, scold Norman, pity Norman and pray for Norman. The book may leave the reader to ponder, examine and weigh what disclosures life has to offer.
