Prayers and Po-Boys
July 6, 2021
Memoir - Christian
No one ever wants to hear the three words “you have cancer.” Yet, these words are spoken to thousands of people around the world, and Larry Singleton was one of them.
Through the power of prayer, determination, and a love for po-boys, Larry documents his chemotherapy journey in his memoir Prayers and Po-Boys. Follow along as Larry takes his readers inside the cancer center and details his interactions with his “team”.
Expecting a heart wrenching, emotional, and faith inspiring story, this memoir fell short. Unfortunately, it was a collaboration of rambling and two-minute conversations between Larry and some of his support team. There was no context, no words to evoke feeling, and little to no transition to tie the events together.
A missed opportunity to dig deep and bring readers in to a personal experience, 3 out of 5 stars is the result. Nonetheless, admiration is given to Larry for having the courage to share, and best wishes to him and his family.
