About this title

Synopsis:

Me An' Hal begins with Mugsie explaining to someone about his strange and dire circumstances. The person listening to Mugsie's tale of woe is then revealed, and the story enfolds in the present. The mystery unveils a cacophony of frightening circumstances, humor, excitement, and an array of formidable tribulations that fall upon Mugsie and Hal. The tale is fast moving, with many characters, and events-some terrifying and others hilarious: They include psychics, the police, a private detective, a snoopy reporter, death-fights, an implausible love affair, Einstein's Theory, the Other Side, shocking disclosures, and of course, the mysterious D-Ray Horror. Thoughts and motives of the characters are described deftly, and often humorously.

From the Author:

Me An' Hal is a truly funny book, though definitely not slap-stick comedy.  It shows how a couple of nearly down and out, not too well educatated, older guys think and act when faced with numerous unexpected events.

The story is rife with both oddball and serious charactors, and pokes fun of them all. The reader will find it difficult to second guess what is going to happen next, but can be assured that there will be a good laugh on just about every page. This book has a "feel good" ending, and will leave readers in a happy, if not contemplative mood.

The story begins with Mugsie, a practical, down to earth, retired petty thief, who is explaining his present situation. He describes his best friend and room-mate, Hal, a burly-pie-in-the-sky dreamer who is a retired con-man. Hal was a high school graduate, so he is well regarded by Mugsie. After a series of circumstances, which Mugsie describes, the reader discovers that Mugsie was telling his problems to a specific person. When he finishes, the story continues in present-time mode.

There are sequences where Hal pretends to be a famous scientist and Mugsie is confronted by embarracing situations. They meet a scewball detective; a fake FBI woman, an angry police lieutenant; are captured by the evil Komodo Dragon, and threatened by various thugs along the way.

This book is suitable for teenagers on up. Everyone who has read Me An' Hal
is asking for the sequel, which will be ready by April, 2011.  .
