Maurice Yacowar, BA'62, 1987 Distinguished Alumni and Professor Emeritus, is publishing again. Wayne State University Press is re-issuing his 1977 study, Hitchcock's British Films, and Athabasca University Press is publishing Roy and Me: This is not a memoir. The new book is an experiment in creative non-fiction that centres on his teenage apprenticeship with the controversial British war hero and local editor/politician Roy Farran. The book also recalls Maurice's experiences as founding editor of The Gauntlet 50 years ago on the university's new campus. As they bring his book total to 20, he has promised not to write any others. His essay, Making Sense of the Silences in Mad Men, also appeared in Reading Mad Men in November.
