The Matthew Parker who wrote the memoir, "Larceny In My Blood" has written nothing but this memoir. I also found out this morning that this memoir is a comic book! And not a serious work of literature. I only paid seventy-six cents for this comic book plus postage, but still I was a little disappointed to discover I had not bought what I thought would be an interesting memoir of someone who had become a successful writer after being a drug addict for years.
But I am still impressed that Matthew Parker who wrote the memoir "Larceny In My Blood" had been able to overcome his drug addiction and went on to received a good education/higher education. I personally received a good education in spite of my background of poverty and existential despair. I am an educated Christian with a storehouse full of heavenly knowledge that no one wants. I am glad that now I am retired and can wait for death in a condition middle-class comfort. The Lord is good.
(I do not consider myself educated since I do not know how to write proper a sentence. I write listening to the words as I seek to write them out. If the sentence sounds smooth then I do not correct it. I am always going over my journals/blogs and rewriting stuff all the time. To me it would be blessing to be able to write like John Updike or Joyce Carol Oates. Instead I write like someone born in a housing project in Oakland California.)
