This is the second edition where real names and places are used when known. From his early childhood, Murray Clark sought love and acceptance from his father, who was raised as the bastard child of a famous artist.

Murray struggled with jealousy toward his younger brothers, and he questioned the morals and values of people around him. As an adult, Murray lived life his way, with years of lying, womanizing, and heavy drinking. Though married four times, did he ever find unconditional love? Would Murray’s high intelligence, his love for his two daughters, and his unique philosophy of life help him rise above his demons?
