Abstract/ Summary

I dedicated my book, Lawrence Doyle, first to "Big Jim Pendergast (whom I called, quite rightly, "My first friend on Prince Edward Island") and then to Joe Walsh, "my first friend in King's County." They both died within the month of January. Joe, at eighty-one, had gone down under his house to thaw out some pipes with a propane torch when some straw insulation caught on fire; the whole house went up and that was the end for Joe. Jim died very quietly at ninety-five after years of confinement. I will miss them both; in fact, I already do. — Sandy Ives
