Roy and Me

This Is Not a Memoir

Maurice Yacowar challenges genre and form in Roy and Me, a cross between memoir and fiction, truth and fantasy. 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 British Special Air Service during World War II, Roy Farran later worked for the Calgary North Hill News (where he hired the sixteen-year-old Yacowar as a cub reporter) and served as a cabinet minister for Alberta Premier Peter Lougheed. During his time with the British goverment in Jerusalem following the war, Farran allegedly kidnapped and murdered a sixteen-year-old member of the militant Stern Gang but was ultimately acquitted. Drawing on Farran's writings and his own imagination, Yacowar weaves a dual narrative that is an exercise in the subjectivity of memory.
