Billy Ray Chitwood

Author Billy Ray Chitwoodabout this book: "The Cracked Mirror - Reflections of an Appalachian Son" is a fictional memoir which indeed holds much truth regarding the author. The book is about a confused and displaced youth who ate a lot of emotional soup and spends a lifetime trying to digest it.

While Prentice Paul Hiller is recovering from hip replacement surgery in a senior care center he writes about his life, from his mobile childhood to an uncertain adult world of bright lights, bars, pretty ladies, marriage, divorce, despair, searching for legacy and meaning - the proverbial 'picket fence' of happiness. He writes about his naval experience, about education and the justice system, literature, politics, war, the historical significance of the times. The book has humor and pathos, and it is illuminating...well written and worthy of a read.

SOME BOOK REVIEW COMMENTS:

• I found this book to be a thoughtful, well told story of an interesting life. The author pulled no punches in baring his soul with refreshing candor and insight as well as good natured humor. (Amazon 5-Stars review by Rosalind R)

• Billy Ray Chitwood's "The Cracked Mirror: Reflections of an Appalachian Son" is a brave, soulful read, which is imaginatively crafted (the story being told from the confines of an assisted living facility - the "way station" - while the main character, Prentice Paul Hiller, is recovering from hip replacement surgery)... This book should be an inspiration to all of us - to find the motivation and make the time to pen our very own memoirs to leave for future generations. (Amazon 4-Stars review by Beach Lover at Heart)
