Ray Neighbor has been a delinquent, a car thief, a U.S. Navy lifeguard, a convict, a rail-riding hobo, a drug addict, a treasure hunter, a poet, a black-belt karate champion, a kids’ baseball coach, a devoted husband and father and a one-night stand-up comic. He was chosen among thousands of co-workers as the winner of the top humanitarian award from a multinational corporation. He battled his way free from addiction, worked his way back to a “normal” life in the Cincinnati suburbs and then was stricken by pancreatic cancer. More than a dozen years later, he is still a survivor with amazing stories to tell and a natural gift for writing that makes them come alive in vivid scenes that take readers from his hometown in Bucyrus, Ohio, to the gritty corners of dark prisons, to the wild psychedelic streets of 1960s San Francisco, and back to his current home in Loveland, Ohio. His unforgettable stories will make you laugh out loud, make you cry, and make you learn to love this Neighbor.
