Example text

WHAT KIND OF MAN? Father was sparse, Spartan, serious with a weird sense of humor linked to plays on words. ” When I was a child, my friends were all scared to death of him because he had an unintentional cold stare that pierced right through you. If you didn’t know him well, he scared you to death—dark hair, dark complexion, not big (in fact, almost gaunt), but scary looking, and often dressed in dark clothes. ” But he didn’t “plug” anyone. He wasn’t mean. He just looked mean. He didn’t have to say a word.

Without Cary, you likely would never have gotten this book. Father was originally privately tutored. My grandfather didn’t believe in the elementary schools of the day, and Aunt Cary could afford better. Later, Father was enrolled in San Francisco’s prestigious Lowell High School. He graduated at age sixteen. Smart, too young, well educated from tutoring, Father was also awkward and lacking in social skills other children normally learn in elementary school. He was frail, brittle, and uncoordinated sports-wise; and being young by comparison, he was small relative to Lowell classmates.

Other people? He just didn’t like being around other people much. He liked me, but if I was around him too much, it bugged him. Or Arthur, and he liked Arthur better than anyone but my mother. But the reality is that Father was just a solitary guy. Regardless of with whom he interacted, it was all relative degrees of solitude. When Arthur and then I came to work with him in the early 1970’s, it drove him nuts, in my opinion. He had been pretty much alone and solitary his whole career, and being around us all that time was too much.
