Coming in on a Wing and a Prayer

In the 1950s, Jerry Vis had an uneventful, blue-collar, stickball-in-the-street childhood in Paterson, N.J. That is, until his father, who had been no more than a vaporous, bring-home-the-bacon presence, nearly killed himself with alcohol and suddenly got religion. His determination to inflict his newfound faith on all he knew changed Jerry’s life forever.

“Coming in on a Wing and a Prayer” is an excerpt from Jerry Vis’ new memoir, I’m Not Here: Strange Relatives, a Stranger Boarding School, and the Saving Grace of Art and Love. It alternates between reality and a fantasy playing out in Jerry’s mind.
