Robert M. Shafer, author of Mickey: The Giveaway Boy, grew up as a Chicago slum boy and abandoned child. He served 1960-64 in the US Navy and worked thirty-five years as a film/video editor in San Francisco. His childhood experiences inspire much of his writing.

Mickey: The Giveaway Boy

By age twenty-five, Mickey’s mother had borne five sons. By thirty, she’d gotten rid of them all. For nine-year-old Mickey, the early fifties were not the "Ozzie and Harriet" fantasy of love and security. Instead, they were years of abandonment, unimaginable cruelty, and virtual slavery. This memoir reveals Mickey’s devastating struggle for survival.
