Key describes the book as “fiction based on a true story.”

“I wrote about the Class of 1969 from the seventh grade through high school,” said Key, a member of Patton Lane High School’s Class of 1969.

Key, now a master barber in Memphis, grew up in a family of 13 children near Enid.

Biographical details of Key’s main character, Michael DeAngelo Nicholas, occasionally coincide with those of the author.

The book was published by PublishAmerica.
