The Meatloaf Incident

And Other Adventures

A novel by Timothy Starr


Author's Note: Written in 1989, The Meatloaf Incident is loosely based on childhood adventures growing up in Hebron, New York (a small town near the Vermont border). Because it was printed for the benefit of family, there will be no other reprints once they are sold out (only 25 were made available to the public).
