    But, what is the 'Bama reference.

    'Bama is what Mrs. Shaw used to call Jake.

    I made some additions, including his relationship with Roland as a father, and his part of the Epilogue in New York. Hope it's fine.

    I have a question regarding the relationship between Jake and his father. In Chapter 2 „Key and Rose“, one can read:

    „John Chambers, who was Jake to the three or four boys who were almost his friends (if his father had known this little factoid, he undoubt-edly would have hit the roof), was finishing his first year at The Piper School.„

    Why would his father hit the roof? Is it the fact that was not allowed to have friends or was because of the fact that he was called Jake? Are their any indicators to clear this up? Thanks for your help.

    The truncation of his name would have upset his father.

    I respectfully disagree. As I posted in another thread, in my family there is 4 generations of "Wylde Bill". Sr. thru IV. Each of us had a nickname so that when you yelled for "Bill" 4 guys didn't come running. Bill, Billy, Liam and Dad. So, calling his son "Jake" and him "John" shouldn't have been a big deal. It just made sense to tell them apart so to speak. JMHO is all

    To his father, he was never Jake and rarely John. To his father, he was usually just "the kid."

    I think King was telling us that Jake's father is tightly wound in a way in which your family members (fortunately) weren't.
    Please guide me

    and carry me on
