Men Shake Hands: A Creative Reminiscence (Paperback)
In Men Shake Hands, precocious four year old Davey grapples with unanswered questions while living the up and down life of a child of divorced parents. He's in post-war Multnomah, Oregon in the 1940s and 50s, where divorce is unusual. Davey himself is an unusual child, more interested in acting and singing than football and tag like the other boys in his neighborhood.
When Davey is betrayed, we cry with him. When he puts on his first play in the garage, we clap At his first sensations of love, we put our virtual arms around him. And when he discovers his voice and sings, we rejoice, and follow him to New York City.
Men Shake Hands. A heart-grabbing story creatively based on the author's life, told in Davey's own point of view.
