The Way It Was: A Memoir

Gaillard edited and wrote the introduction for this 2007 collection of remembrance by Charlotte writer Tom Peacock. The book, published by Main Street Rag Publishing Company, features Peacock’s reflections on growing up in the Depression, as well as his own look back at World War II. “His recollections are rich in their array of characters,” Gaillard wrote, “and his wry observations are deepened by the depth of his gentle understandings.” The Way It Was, the first book-length collection of Peacock’s writings, was published when he was 87 years old.
