Old, in his late eighties and failing, asks himself, “Besides just another relic of time, who am I– really?” Concerned with what life has given him and what he has given it, Old begins writing his memoir using what he calls “windows into his life.” Each segment recounts a particular time in his life when he received an epiphany: the aftermath of a lynching as a young child; struggling with family loyalties; his introduction to homosexuality; his first crush; meeting an ostracized teenager who becomes his life-long friend; how his college educational experience changed his life; his enlistment and experiences in the navy during the Korean War; his experience of marrying too young; his career as a freelance writer; travel experiences and their effects on his life; finding lasting love; his painful experiences struggling with cancers and the effects of medication;; and his ultimate understanding and acceptance of his life as he nears the end.
Additional Info
“Author W. Royce Adams delivers a unique and intimately drawn reflection on a fictional life well-lived in As Time Goes By. The protagonist named Old, with wisdom to match his name, invites readers into his philosophy-forward memoir, laced with humor and potential answers to some of the biggest questions we face, propelled forward by Adams’ engaging narrative voice. The writing is thought-provoking throughout, the author’s powers of description are impressive, and Old is a fascinating lead character and storyteller; his eventful life and perspective are engrossing, and despite being a fictional memoir, his continual insight resonates as deeply as real-world experience.” Self-Publishing Review, ★★★★
