The Gingerbread Man

Full Product Description

Born in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, Fred Welch thought he led a normal life.

With his family, he migrated along the coastline of Louisiana and Mississippi like a sea bird. He was educated by nuns at the Sisters of Mercy, but they weren't all that merciful!

He watched his father grow obsessed with owning his own business. And he moved once again with the rest of his family to a neighborhood on the wrong side of the railroad tracks when that business failed.

There was the Great Chicken Caper, trips to hot spots, fishing, young love, sex, and loss. And of course, just like his parents, Fred had his own "wolf:" the thing that haunts all of us and gets in the way of our spiritual and physical growth.

Explore a life that really isn't all that normal after all, and find out what it was like growing up in the 1940s and '50s. But take care to watch out for the wolf in The Gingerbread Man.

The Gingerbread Man by Fred Welch was published by iUniverse in January 2009. The ISBN for The Gingerbread Man is 9781440111648.
