Larry Clayton's story-the true tale of a working man from a working-class family who never forgot from where he came-begins in Louisville, Kentucky, in the 1930s right after the devastating Wall Street crash. Despite growing up in the poorest part of Louisville and then the rough-and-tumble Southside of Chicago, Larry went on to build a full and prosperous life. In Chicago, youthful misadventures involved drugs, shoplifting, and a little bit of hustle, most often leading to more serious crimes, but Larry's path eventually veered away from these influences. My Memories Are My Testimony chronicles his troubled youth, his subsequent career in the Air Force, and his experience in the corporate world. Inspirational and compelling, this memoir is proof that a man's life need not be defined by his beginnings.
