Summary
  • In this cross between memoir and fiction, Maurice Yacowar explores his relationship with Roy Farran -- a Canadian politician who, while a soldier in Israel, allegedly kidnapped and murdered a sixteen-year-old member of the the Stern Gang
  • "Maurice Yacowar challenges genre and form in Roy & Me, a cross between memoir and fiction, truth and distortion. It is the exploration of Yacowar's relationship with Roy Farran--soldier, politician, author, mentor--and his conflict with Farran's anti-Semitic past. Best known for his service with the British Special Air Service during World War II, Roy Farran served as a politician in the Legislative Assembly of Alberta for Premier Peter Lougheed. During his time in Israel as a soldier, Farran allegedly kidnapped and murdered a sixteen-year-old member of the Lehi group, also known as the Stern Gang. Roy & Me is a memoir that edges toward fiction by venturing into Roy Farran's thoughts, drawing simultaneously on his writings and Yacowar's own imagination."--Publisher's description
