I Was A Champion Then: Twelve Stories About Quiet Injustice, Small Rebellions and Restless Hope

Upon his death in 2012, Alfred A. Meyer left behind over 30,000 pages of unpublished writings going back to 1964. Most of the pages revolved around Meyer’s unfinished novel, but his son, writer Christopher Paul Meyer, also found twelve short stories buried in the stacks of papers. Featuring harsh moments and quiet victories, uncensored memories and poetic honesty, the stories explore race and class, childhood and cruelty, art and baseball. Edited and introduced by Christopher Paul Meyer, the stories can now be presented to the public for the first time.
