In my room
This is the first draft of a novel I wrote in the late 1970s. It is extremely autobiographical and focuses on my first stay at a rooming house in Montclair. I had intended to write a second novel to reflect my return to the house in 1977, but never got around to it. But I have a number of short stories from both periods that are handwritten or in other volumes that also cover this time period. Some of this is also included in other novels, mostly handwritten.
