At age 59, author STEVE ROGERS has played golf for 48 of those years. His love of the game inspired him to write this novel, told by a narrator who has Alzheimer's disease. Lost in Love Grass shows the author's lifetime love of the game and his keen observations of human behavior. Having previously written two children's books, he wanted to prove he could write a "big boy" book. Former football star with the Oakland Raiders and New England Patriots, Mark van Eeghen wrote, "What an absolutely fun read! The story unfolded beautifully and I'm thrilled Steve included me in the book. It's a good thing he is a far better writer than a golfer!" "I enjoyed each and every page of the book. It made me laugh out loud.The writing is reminiscent of Jack Kerouac." - Ginny Walsh, retired public school teacher, Worcester, Mass. "This is the ultimate 'golf guy' book. It is sarcastic, pessimistic, bawdy, self-deprecating and dark. There are lots of adjectives that fit into the description. How about earthy, gritty, rough with all the divots replaced." - Bob Black, visiting professor at Massachusetts Maritime Author STEVE ROGERS has pledged 20 percent of the profi ts of this book to four Massachusetts charities. He is an insurance company territory manager and lives with his wife of 38 years, Elaine, in Cape Cod, Mass., and Naples, Florida. They have two sons, Tom and Tim, and three grandchildren; Lily, Charlie and Ellie.
