"The only way to go on is to go on. To say, I can do this even when you know you can't" This story spoke to me. Edgar spoke to me. From beginning to end, and even in the middle when life on The Key became mundane. Edgar tells this tale. Although Mr. King wrote this tale, it is Edgar telling it. While I was reading it, I became lost in the narration. I forgot about King, and to me, Edgar became real, someone I can relate to, a one armed artist with an itch. But also, Edgar inspired me. He inspired me to tell my stories and paint my pictures and not to worry about the criticism that follows.
