Why this book?
This is an edition of Hickey’s memoirs that I used in writing my book. It is an abridged version of the complete memoirs, which makes it more accessible to the general reader and includes episodes that are racy, raunchy, and quite often hilarious. The edition really captures the personality of the author, foibles and all. He was a scoundrel and a promiscuous sexual adventurer, but somehow the reader comes away with a fondness for the brutally honest Hickey.
