Miss Myrtles Boy is a deceptively simple depiction of a youngsters coming of age in a very different time and place, the almost idyllic mid-America community of the 1940s and 50s.

Larance masterfully takes us back to Warren during a period when traditional systems of authority were accepted, prices remained reasonable, jobs plentiful and inflation low. His tales about boyhood adventures, misadventures and experiences are evocative of family situations in Ozzie & Harriet and Leave it to Beaver. Warren was a community where everyone knew everyone, and young Larance was known as Miss Myrtles boy.From getting to know the lumberyard night watchman, to blowing up a family chicken with a cherry bomb, Larances Arkansas tales take us beyond the white picket fence of his modest boyhood home, and give us a new appreciation for mayhaws, pink tomatoes, squirrel mulligan and fishing on Pair-O-Geese for Gasper Ghouls.

His observations and anecdotes are spiced with little lessons for life, all served up in a convincing and entertaining narrative, especially for those who can relate to that uncomplicated period of American history and the small town milieu.There may be few boyhoods left like the one portrayed in Miss Myrtles Boy.
