Since the time he was a boy, Warren R. Deasy dreamed of owning and operating an old-fashioned merry-go-round. That opportunity finally presented itself when the owners of the carousel in Los Angeles's Griffith Park announced that they were about to retire, leaving an opening for a new caretaker for their stable of colorfully painted wooden horses. "Though I never guessed it," the new owner relates, "it was the start of an uncharted journey-an adventure which was to take me through heartache and pain and ultimately to fulfillment of an impossible dream." The Merry-Go-Round is Worn is a charming memoir with enough love, laughter, and tears to inspire romantics of all ages. Come along for the ride-you might even grab the brass ring!
