The story of a relationship between Bob Levin, a workers' compensation lawyer in Berkeley, and Jimmy Don Polk, a disabled, homeless, pan handler. Parts are true and parts are not, but which is which is not always clear. Termed "a novel" when published, its author has always believed "biographic fiction" to be a more accurate classification. It is really a story about stories.

Bob Levin was born in Philadelphia March 14, 1942. Since 1968, he has lived in Berkeley with his wife Adele, a writer and retired psychotherapist. A retired attorney, he represented the injured in workers' compensation cases for more than 40 years.
