Mike Robertson continues to pursue literary ambitions with this, his fourteenth book written and published over the past eighteen years. They range over a significant contrast of narratives and styles, imagination and recollection often the inspiration and impulse. The novella Get a Job joins three collections of short stories, Casting Shadows, Parts of A Past, and These Memories Clear, three volumes of literary entertainments entitled The Smart Aleck Chronicles, six novels, Gone and Back, The First Communion Murders, The Hidden History of Jack Quinn, Picture Windows, The Biography of George, and The Changing Mysteries of Parkdale Court. He has also published an account of his sixty years of playing recreational baseball entitled Innings. Mike Robertson, who has been writing in one form or another since he was in high school, is retired and lives in profound anonymity in Ottawa, Canada.
