A coming of age tale during the Korean conflict set against a be-bop backdrop.

The Clarence Chronicles is the book that caused Clint Eastwood to make a serious career error. Many years ago, I sent the chapter entitled "George" to Clint Eastwood. Clint Eastwood and/or his protective staff rejected the opportunity to read and produce, as a movie, the story "George." Instead he funded and produced a total box office flop about Charlie Parker. The besotted, drug addict, be-bop blowing saxophone player. Charlie was a great jazz pioneer but his life had the dramatic interest of a bowl of two-week-old milk and cheerios left on the back porch in 95-degree weather. Could it be Clint Eastwood was jealous of George's piano skills that far exceeded his own ivory-tickling talents?
