Roy & Me

A Memoir and Then Some

Best known for his service with the Special Air Service during the Second World War, 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. 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 in a memoir that edges toward fiction by venturing into Farran’s thoughts.
