about this item
In Sort of Still Original in Unoriginal Times, Michael Loyd Gray's memories are shared from adventures and instances of mayhem throughout several decades. Entertainment is provided as Gray recounts his experiences from Arkansas to Arizona, from Chicago to Paris, and from drunken Polish block parties to ****** star gatherings. We meet famous individuals, including authors and musicians. We learn helpful and solid advice about the career of writing. We evaluate the pros and cons of music, movies, politics, and culture. We consider the differences between great rock and roll music and the nonsense dubbed "rap."". We embrace a deep and profound admiration of Hemingway, and the art of literature.
Gray provides his select recollections of his life as a boy who broke his arm, as a young man who lucked out of the draft, as a college student who absorbed the knowledge from his professors, and as a reporter who chanced to meet and interview numerous and memorable people. With sharp wit, unforgiving opinions, direct rhetoric, and sarcastic politics, Sort of Still Original in Unoriginal Times is an enjoyable read.
