Synopsis

Maurice Yacowar challenges genre and form in Roy & Me,

a cross between memoir and fiction, truth and distortion. It is the

exploration of Yacowar's relationship with Roy Farran -

soldier, politician, author, mentor - and his conflict with

Farran's anti-Semitic past.









Best known for his service with the Special Air Service during World

War II, Roy Farran served as a politician in the Legislative Assembly

of Alberta for Premier Peter Lougheed. During his time as a soldier,

Farran allegedly kidnapped and murdered a sixteen-year-old member of

the Lehi group.









Roy & Me is a memoir that edges toward fiction by

venturing into Farran's thoughts, based on his writings and

Yacowar's imagination.
