The Events Leading Up To My Death is a beautifully authored story of humour, pathos, injury, and of love unrequited and of love fulfilled. This book is for the young, the middle-aged, the old. Ron Pumphrey, man of a thousand lives, will keep you enthralled by this book's citings of some of the very cream of his quite adventurous life. Notably, he shares for the first time the story of his meteoric rise to fame as a radio talk-show host in Newfoundland. Here you will see a human being like ourselves who never, ever said "It can't be done." Ron Pumphrey is a master storyteller. No, this is definitely NOT fiction. It's happily, pathetically, juicily true.
