Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0805041621, Hardcover)Stay Here with Me is really a fictional "memoir" of Robert Olmstead's life. Though the main facts are true--he grew up on a farm, went to college at 19, and performed a variety of odd jobs in between cross-country motorcycle adventures--Olmstead is gifted in the art of embroidering facts. He describes in amusing detail how he and two other farm helpers lifted a ton stone, by hand, and boasts that he was so adjusted to natural time on the farm, he didn't learn to read a clock until he was 14. Readers will want to believe the brilliant and tender rendering of a youthful romance, though the young lady in question just might object to Olmstead's recollection of it.
