about

Maurice Yacowar challenges genre and form in Roy & Me,a cross between memoir and fiction, truth and distortion. It is theexploration of Yacowar’s relationship with Roy Farran –soldier, politician, author, mentor – and his conflict withFarran’s anti-Semitic past.

Best known for his service with the Special Air Service during WorldWar II, Roy Farran served as a politician in the Legislative Assemblyof Alberta for Premier Peter Lougheed. During his time as a soldier,Farran allegedly kidnapped and murdered a sixteen-year-old member ofthe Lehi group.

Roy & Me is a memoir that edges toward fiction byventuring into Farran’s thoughts, based on his writings andYacowar’s imagination.
Maurice Yacowar is a professor emeritus in the Department of English at the University of Calgary. He also taught at Brock University, where he helped establish Canada’s first film studies program.
