Memory is a Fickle Jade is a collection of essays about Newfoundland's history from the early 1900s through to the end of World War II. Much of the history noted here is from the personal observations of the author, supported by official documents and news reports of the events. Some of the topics include William F. Coaker and the rise of the Fishermen's Protective Union, the power of the Orange Lodge in rural communities, the Hollis-Walker Inquiry of 1924, the impact of the Depression years, and the Riot of 1932, among others.

Raymond W. Guy was born and educated in Musgrave Harbour, Newfoundland. He worked in the business and retail trade of thirty years. In 1940 he went overseas to serve in the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve, receiving his commission as a Sub-lieutenant in April, 1941. At the end of that year he was promoted to Lieutenant. During the Battle of the Atlantic, where Mr. Guy served as 1st Lieutenant of an escort ship, he was mentioned in dispatches. Between 1959 and 1962 Mr. Guy sat in the House of Assembly as the Member for Grand Falls, following which he returned to the retail trade. In 1965 he moved to St. John's to work with the Emergency Measures Organization (E.M.O.). Mr. Guy retired to Musgrave Harbour in 1977.

Raymond Guy has researched and written essays about many aspects of Newfoundland's history, some of which can be found in magazines such as the Newfoundland Quarterly. In 1971 and 1977 Mr. Guy was awarded first prize in the History section of the Arts and Letters Competition, and in 1995 his first book From the Straight Shore, was published.
