The novel of an artist.
First he drew women.
Then he drew them.
Being pals with the likes of
John Steinbeck, John Carradine, Dunninger,
Woody Guthrie, even Bob Dylan, would prove
secondary to edification of his artistic spirit.
Some tales are poignant, some are hilarious.
All are told in Mahlon's unique voice,
and all reveal something unexpected.
