Index: Autobiographical Fantasies

My memoir, Three Lost Worlds, underwent a major weight-loss program along the way. These “autobiographical fantasies” were spawned from what hit the cutting room floor in the editing process. I hope you will enjoy them.

11/5/21 — Mr. Haircut: Of all the jobs I fell backwards into, this one struck the deepest note.

10/30/21 — Theodosia and the Bonesetter: My ancestor, Job Sweet, performed manual medicine on the daughter of Vice President Aaron Burr.
