Robert Shafer // Mickey: The Giveaway Boy

Mickey: The Giveaway Boy – By age 25, Mickey’s mother had born five sons. By 30, she’d gotten rid of them all. For nine-year-old Mickey, the early fifties were not the Ozzie and Harriet fantasy of love and security. Instead, they were years of abandonment, unimaginable cruelty, and virtual slavery. This memoir reveals Mickey’s devastating experiences of being handed off from one abusive person to another…all in the name of survival.

Robert Shafer, author of "Mickey: The Giveaway Boy", grew up as a Chicago slum boy and abandoned child. He served 1960-64 in the US Navy and worked thirty-five-years as a film/video editor in San Francisco. His childhood experiences inspire much of his writing. He currently resides and writes prose and poetry in Napa, California and often recites at local Open Mics.
