Larry Lee grew up with an abusive father, and he struggled with addiction. What sets this memoir apart is the depth of its candor, the stream of consciousness across the page. More than linear narrative, it is a prose poem so raw it feels like an open bleed from the heart. Everyone has a story. This is Larry Lee's, and it is unique among all others.

Very well written, a coming into oneself, Life and Christ. Starting the story at a place that society turns it back on and refuses to acknowledge is the old 'village to raise a child rule', as family, friends, neighbors, teachers people in every walk of life that contribute knowingly or otherwise to the pain of a child, yet are the 1st to pass judgement when that child rebels.. I Couldn't put this one down, Simply amazing book Great Job

Larry’s fiction book The Plantation is scheduled to be released in the fall of 2021.


The obstacles in Larry A. Lee’s life opened his heart and mind to turn silences into words. A dream lived inside of him as a young boy. Wisdom through struggle and compassion, his self-educated imagination describes the tragic, comic, absurd, ironic, hopeful, and surreal moments of his life. Larry‘s book Out of the Field demonstrates how important it is to dream in one’s life, and he shows adversity unlocks one’s real strengths and values.


Larry wrote Out of the Field to inspire other lost boys and girls to envision another life beyond the conditions of their circumstances, so their futures will not vanish from their mind’s eye. By virtue of self-reflection, he broke free of the imprisonment of a black and white world, and the relentless discovery of Self bore the purity of wisdom through forgiveness. The truth is ugly and uncomfortable, but the future begins with the right choice. Formidable and in the distance, Larry presses forward into the unknown, and he hopes others will follow their dreams.



Heartbreaking and heartwarming all at the same time! I went to middle school with a Larry. It is amazing what you don’t know about people when you are that age and the amount of suffering they are going thru. Highly recommend this wonderful book, looking forward to more of Larry’s writings!


Absolutely amazing story! The battles that Larry faced starting as a small child through adulthood are beyond what 99% of the population has experienced. Larry overcame many obstacles to be part of an small family of fire professionals that manage large, complex incidents throughout the United States. Powerful book, shows what faith and determination can do.

Admittedly, I’m going to be a little biased over my father’s book. I always knew my father had a story to share and I am glad he is now able to share it with the world. In this you will discover the trials my father faced at such a young age and the fact that he endured and succeeded is an inspiration to any who reads his book.
