William E. Oliver Jr., a Rhode Island native and US military veteran who survived the Vietnam war, earned a college degree, married, had two wonderful daughters, bought a house via the GI Bill, and spent his life chasing the American dream, has completed his new book “Oh, It’s You, Buster Grimes!”: a series of lighthearted and deeply honest reflections on family and friendship from early childhood through his high school graduation.

“Buster Grimes was just living his life but along the way discovered the difference between an acquaintance and a friend. He also discovered how to stand alone and not chase the crowd. These two things some people never discover.”

Published by Page Publishing, William E. Oliver Jr.’s engrossing book is an entertaining collection of anecdotes drawn from his early years in the postwar era.

Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “Oh, It’s You, Buster Grimes!” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
