This book attempts no in-depth literary critique, total assessment
of an artist or a full picture of a man whose life had many facets.
I leave that to others. It is a sketch, an attempt at some empathy,
to bring Ted Lewis alive. To some extent it is work in progress.
All creative contributions will only serve to further illuminate
the life, art and times of Edward (Ted) Lewis, also known as
Lew or Ed.
