Welcome to the The Personal History, Adventures, Experiences & Observations of Peter Leroy podcast. I’m glad you’re here. The Personal History is one large work of fiction composed of many interconnected parts. Its parts are the memoirs and collected works of a fictional character, Peter Leroy, an earnest screwball who tells an alternative version of his life story.

“A masterpiece of American humor.” The Los Angeles Times

Perhaps among the many there may be some who for a moment will turn aside from tales of haughty Heroes, ruffling it in Court and Camp, to listen to the story of a very ordinary lad who lived with very ordinary folk . . . , and who grew up to be a very ordinary sort of man, loving a little and grieving a little, helping a few and harming a few, struggling and failing and hoping; and if any such there be, let them come round me.

Jerome K. Jerome, Paul Kelver, “Prologue”
