Charles Frankhauser

about this book: Miss Williams is a memoir written primarily to encourage Young Adults to pursue obtaining an education in order to increase the odds of living a comfortable life as an adult. This work is written to entertain a universal readership without seeming at first glance to be, "just another misery memoir." The work is not a "misery memoir." The author's celebrity is non-existant; the author's platform is currently limited to graduates of the U.S. Naval Academy.

However, a search engine entry of "charles frankhauser trumpet" lists the Big Band career of the author's dad. This memoir opens a door, in a manner of speaking, to a child's life traumatized by a fifth grade failure, being forced to choose between parents, living among dysfunctional relatives, being mentored by a freight elevator operator, and finally graduating from the U.S. Naval Academy. A series of adventures following graduation reveals "education not found in books." Miss Williams was a fifth grade teacher; the author was her last student on the day she retired. Her last words to him were, "Someday you'll thank me."
