    GO WHAT I HAVE

    Hey,

    Would you please help me undo this mystery?
    The following is quoted from the book " for one more day."
    Would you please tell me what "Go" in "GO WHAT I HAVE written here"
    means here ?
    Thank you very much in advance.
    "He returned to his mower. I let go of the fence. It was rusty, and
    some of the rust came off on my
    fingers.
    Every family is a ghost story. I approached the bleachers.
    GO WHAT I HAVE written here is what Charles "Chick” Benetto told me in
    our conversation that
    morning – which stretched out much longer than that–as well as
    personal notes and pages from his
    journal that I found later, on my own. I have assembled them into the
    following narrative, in his voice,
    because I'm not sure you would believe this story if you didn't hear
    it in his voice. "

    It makes no sense to me.

    It makes sense without it, so it's probably a proofreading error.

    Re: GO WHAT I HAVE

    : 'So' or something.

    There is a very informal Br Eng meaning of 'go' - =choose/wish for [usually in the context of food - e.g. 'I could go a nice steak and chips now'. But there are two things against this:
    • Br Eng speakers don't say 'bleachers' - unless they're telling stories of what they did on holiday in the USA
    • It still wouldn't make sense, even with the changed meaning
