by Roscoe L. Herring
The title to this engaging autobiography, Life Is a Strange Feeling, was conceived more than two decades before the completion of the actual book, as the author walked through a park in the New Center area of Detroit, Michigan. The auto industry at the time was in a state of collapse; vast numbers of corporate employees were being required to make sacrifices beyond all reasonable expectations; and the outcome of Roscoe L. Herring’s own personal circumstances had left him devastated. This whirlwind of emotions is unlike anything he had previously endured, and it led to reflections on the varied experiences – from early childhood through marriage, combat, and professional challenges – that had shaped his character, his values, and his perspective on life. Life Is a Strange Feeling is the culmination and expression of those times.
