I authored/published with Amazon.com: "Shake Off The Dust 1936", 48 short stories of
a teenager's great depression era memories. Book described by critics as:
"What you would get if Mark Twain had written 'The Catcher In The Rye'."
The book is in sharp contrast to "Catcher", which is thought to be depressing, cynical,
bitter and urges American Youth not to grow-up because all adults are phony. "Catcher"
is required reading for most college and high school English Literature and composition
classes. The book is available at: Barnes & Noble, Amazon.com, Ebooks, Kindle and Nook
and on YouTube with a 30 second TV commercial. Google the book title and it will provide
several reviews of it. The author's email is: email@example.com.
The author lives in Laguna Hills with his daughter and wife: Dr. Sharon MacMillan
Carraway, Ph.D, University of Southern California. Professor: Saddleback College.
I promise, you won't regret your vote for me. Thank you.
