    Summary

    I wrote this long story, called "Strong at the Broken Places." It's a hugely long story, and it took me a little over a year to write it, and it tells the story of a boy named Loki, hospitalized at a private mental facility called Whittier Hospital. There he forms a bond with another patient, Tony. And for a while Tony is the healthier of the two, then Loki recovers, and finally he leaves Whittier, where Tony is still locked up, with no hope of ever being released. And I promised a happy ending for that one... I did my best, and I think the ending is ...reasonably happy. But toward the end while I was writing it, I began to have dark inklings of how the story could end, a horrible, sad way that it could end. And I knew I couldn't do that to the people who were reading "Strong," the people I'd promised a happy ending to... I couldn't do it to myself, I wanted to see Tony get a few of the things he wanted so badly, and I wanted to give Loki the happiness of giving them to him. So I ended that one the way I'd been planning to end it, the reasonably happy way. But I told myself I'd come back and write out the dark ending too. This is it, this is that dark ending.

    Summary

    In telling the story of my father's life, it's impossible to separate fact from fiction, the man from the myth. The best I can do is to tell it the way he told me. It doesn't always make sense, and most of it never happened.

    But that's what kind of story this is.

    Or: On his deathbed, Erik Lensherr takes it upon himself to tell his greatest story. The story of his life.

    (Based on the movie "Big Fish".)
