A Closer Look
Robert B. Parker was many things: the son of a telephone company executive, a wise-guy college student, a soldier at a Morse code key on the line between North and South Korea, an extraordinarily knowledgeable sports fan and a first baseman, a writer of technical manuals and the editor of an insurance agents' magazine, a partner in the world's smallest advertising agency, an excellent cook and handyman, a serious student of detective fiction, a Ph.D. professor, andmost important to hima husband, father, and dog owner. He was a very interesting person who lived a full and very satisfying life. And Bob was genuine: in private, in public, and in his writings, he was the same person.
