Ho ho ho! It’s that time of year again. Here’s JHK’s holiday classic: A Christmas Orphan.

11-year-old Jeff Greenaway hears his mom and dad argue one night after an office Christmas party. He infers from their garbled squabble that he is an orphan, found in a willow basket on the welcome mat outside their New York apartment. Thinking now that his parents are imposters, he steals away to Grand Central Station and buys a train ticket to Drakesville, Vermont, where he intends to start life all over again.

WW Norton 1983
Story of a rock and roll star thought to be dead but discovered living an anonymous and reclusive life in a back corner of New England. The story cuts back and forth between the 1960s and the then-present day of the narration, which is in the voice of a music journalist who discovers the rocker. It’s a pretty good description of an era now fading deep into the past. Scenes of original Woodstock festival.  A decent literary performance, but the publisher had no idea how to bring it to the public’s attention.
