Charles Frankhauserabout 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."

Can't keep a good man downThe author may have come from a dis-functional family for it's day but at least he knew who his father was. He had people who cared about him, his teacher, aunt, relatives and friends. They must have seen something in him that indicated he was an achiever, smart, talented and appreciative. On one wants to be around un appreciative person. I believe people who come from bad situations make good writers. Gives them something to write about but opens the door to know what life is about (good or bad) and how you handle it. [by John Murphy]
