Larry W. Thompson II is a rural Alabama native who escaped poverty by earning a scholarship to the University of Alabama, where he studied electrical engineering and English literature and now works as a sales specialist for an international manufacturer. He has published his latest book “Normal”: a spellbinding first volume in his autobiographical series.

The author writes, “An unfinished work is an unfinished soul. As we travel the paths of the life that are set before us, we all like to think that we are living a normal life. Do we ever stop to ask ourselves, however, what is normal? Sometimes we find that we have reached adulthood, and yet we still struggle with unresolved issues from the past. It is those issues that truly keep us from living. The story of Normal follows a father as he struggles to come to grips with his tumultuous past. Although he charts a path that will make him face his past, it is not until he stands at the foot of his struggles that he makes a decision. If there is something in your past that lies unresolved, perhaps a visit to Normal will be exactly what you need.”

Published by Page Publishing, Larry W. Thompson II’s engrossing book is a deeply personal and heart-wrenching journey into a painful family history.

Readers who wish to experience this work can purchase “Normal” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
