In exchange for quarters in her pantry, he served as companion, driver, confidant and occasional medic for the flamboyant and worldly septuagenarian. His account of those times pulls the reader through religious, cultural and historical tales laced with intrigue, felony and mystery." See you on the radio Tuesday, 6 pm, dear listeners!
