Roy & Me
A Memoir and Then Some
Maurice Yacowar challenges genre and form in Roy & Me,a cross between memoir and fiction, truth and distortion. It is theexploration of Yacowar’s relationship with Roy Farran –soldier, politician, author, mentor – and his conflict withFarran’s anti-Semitic past.

During his time as a soldier,Farran allegedly kidnapped and murdered a sixteen-year-old member ofthe Lehi group.Roy & Me is a memoir that edges toward fiction byventuring into Farran’s thoughts, based on his writings andYacowar’s imagination.
