"I was eight years old, living in a foster home in 1948 and had not seen my father since 1946. He met me by the mailbox in front of Davis old farmhouse with some parting words, I came to say goodbye, I ll probably never see you again, you be a good boy ." The turmoil in Gary Palmer s childhood left some deep-rooted scars, but he never used them as a crutch for failure. He escaped the problems of his early youth by retreating to the woods, playing imaginary games, and developing an obsession with sports. Remarkably, he overcame the emotional upheaval of his early years, a period marred by domestic abuse, alcoholism, neglect, abandonment, and poverty. He survived a children s home, foster homes, and living with his dear grandmother when she was left to die in a one room shack. Chagrin Falls is a memoir written superbly and from the heart, and the setting is classic and incredulous an upscale small town, Chagrin Falls, Ohio, during the nostalgic 1940s and 1950s.
