Author Ira Spector played poker for years with an artificial turkey inseminator, and had after-tennis "prayer meetings" with his pals where they screamed and shouted at each other and solved all the worlds problems in one hour. He was slowly infected with an itch to document the most memorable episodes in the jar of jelly beans that has been his life.

He chronicles his story in seventy-one essays and poems which are frank and at times outrageous. His eventful and unusual romps through six continents and eighty one countries, the diversity of his career and the characters he met are amply described in this rich narrative.

He talks about:
• Losing his virginity in a whore house in pre-Castro Havana • Barely avoiding a mid-air collision when another airplane flew through his four plane formation. • An atheist says a jewish prayer for the dead with his hand on one of the one hundred skulls wall mounted in a Cambodian prison. • The very first piece of art work he ever did-a 24' X 6' sand cast mural for a major department store.

This enticing memoir is a journey through the exciting highs and memorable adventures encountered in one hell of a lifetime.
