"It's an entertaining story that will play at your heartstrings. An easy, light read about an old and emotionally-broken introverted Jew, a lonely nine-year-old son of a racist bigot, and the salvation found through their forced friendship. It may make you laugh and cry -maybe at the same time." Robert S. -Montreal, Canada Once an amusing extrovert with a reputation as a prankster, Mr. Rosen is entering his senior years as a stoic, thirty-year converted introvert who hates change, has little to no interest in people and is more than content to have his wife sit in the navigator's seat of his life. Since becoming a practising introvert, there have been almost no changes in his life, and for the few that there were, his wife had walked him through them, including the recent move to a much smaller home in a lower/middle-class neighbourhood where he lives directly next door to a racist whose nine-year-old son addresses him as Mr. Jew. Mr. Rosen had seen the move coming, and he is very much aware of the enormous change to come sometime in the, hopefully, far off future; though, he refuses to give it any attention. That change will come on slowly and painfully and will eventually force him to chart his own life's route. This heartwarming and feel-good novel offers a roller-coaster ride of emotion as Mr. Rosen's habitual world begins to implode while on a collision course with the chaotic world of an innocent child, its troubled mother and vengeful father. **Five Stars** "I cried -only to have a smile brought to my face before the tears even dried." Carol H.F. *Warning* The novel contains a section of strong language and involves story elements of death, alcoholism, and domestic violence. Not recommended for those under the age of fourteen. ABOUT THE SERIES The first of the four stand-alone novels in the evocative and not-so-nuclear family saga series called Herring Cove Road where a small group of troubled individuals, dealing with their own personal issues, accidentally come together to form a family unit, and then while struggling to maintain it, are forced to deal with its dark results, such as: racism, death, murder, suicide and much more. Taking place primarily in the 70's, with believable characters and mostly situated in several areas of Halifax, Nova Scotia, the series chronicles the actions (and their results) of an old and introverted Jewish man, a struggling mother, her naive and lonely son, and a boy streetwise beyond his years. 1) On Herring Cove Road: Mr. Jew and the Goy Boy 2) Still on Herring Cove Road: Hickory, Dickory, Death 3) Off Herring Cove Road: The Problem Being Blue 4) Before Herring Cove Road: Ruth Goldman and the Nincompoop (A Love Story)

ABOUT THE SERIES The third of the four stand-alone novels in the evocative and not-so-nuclear family saga series Herring Cove Road, where a small group of troubled individuals, dealing with their own personal issues, accidentally come together to form a family unit, and then while struggling to maintain it, are forced to deal with its dark results, such as: racism, death, murder, suicide and much more. Taking place primarily in the 70's, with believable characters and mostly situated in several areas of Halifax, Nova Scotia, the series chronicles the actions (and their results) of an old and introverted Jewish man, a struggling mother, her naive and lonely son, and a boy streetwise beyond his years. Be warned, each of the novels in this touching series offers an emotional rollercoaster ride from its beginning to its surprising and, perhaps, shocking ending. Volume 1: On Herring Cove Road: Mr. Jew and the Goy Boy Volume 2: Still on Herring Cove Road: Hickory, Dickory, Death Volume 3: Off Herring Cove Road: The Problem Being Blue **Coming October 31, 2014** Volume 4: Before Herring Cove Road: A Love Story **Coming April 1, 2016** ABOUT THIS NOVEL With Blue's father in prison for selling marijuana and his mother estranged for over the last seven years, Blue is doing well, all considering. As the second addition to the not-so-nuclear Dixon family of Lisa, her ten-year-old son, Dwight, and the retired, Jewish introvert, Av, Blue finds himself living in a much better area of Halifax, Nova Scotia, going to a much better school and for the first time, actually applying himself academically as he struggles to fit in. All that's soon threatened when Blue's estranged mother returns to take him away, and around the the same time, he's harassed and threatened by his father's affiliation with the very dangerous, local biker gang to whom his father owes money. This third volume in the Herring Cove Road family saga follows Blue and his surrogate family as they're forced to deal with the quickly escalating problems that threaten both the family unit and its members. Warning: This third novel in the Herring Cove Road series includes violence and coarse language and involves situations of murder and suicide.

This is a story about the rites of passage of a young boy growing up in the Catskill Mountains before it became the Borscht Belt. The author shares his lusts and loves, his young hopes and dreams, his fears and feats of bravery. He writes of a time when there were no fancy hotels with elaborate meals and famous entertainers. It was a time of small entrepreneurs opening boarding houses to accommodate city folk who could not afford to vacation in hotels. It is also the story of a familys struggle to overcome poverty and to cope with neighbors who were sometimes hostile because of religious differences, and sometimes gracious despite religious differences. The author looks back nostalgically at the interdependence of siblings despite their rivalries, and the unquestioning love and cooperation within a family struggling to succeed through emergencies, catastrophes, and aggravations. It is a well-rounded history of love, hope and aspirations, and the down-to-earth experiences of dealing with life in the not so long ago past. Throughout our lifetime together, my husband shared many of these experiences with me. He is now sharing them with you. I am grateful to have been invited into his past. I hope you will be too. Mildred Bluming, BA, MA School Psychologist, Los Angeles Unified School District

In 2009, adult adoptee Sam Tallerico underwent a search for his birth mother. In the process, he was led to believe that his biological father was the actor/singer Bobby Darin. This book asks the following questions: When did the author find out he was adopted? How does an adult adoptee go about learning the identities of his biological parents if the records are sealed? What rights, if any, do adult adoptees have when it comes to viewing these files? What led the author to believe that he was the son of Bobby Darin? Did the author do a DNA test? Was his birth mother able to verify his paternal parentage? Does he have any siblings? How have Bobby Darin's family and friends addressed this news? What's been the reaction from the deceased singer's fans? Why don't any current biographies (at press time), either online or in print, acknowledge the author's connection to Bobby Darin? Finally, just what drove the author to pen this memoir? And what does he hope to gain as a result of its publication?

Boxing is one of the oldest and most exciting of sports: its bruising and bloody confrontations have permeated Western culture since 3000 BC. During that period, there has hardly been a time in which young men, and sometimes women, did not raise their gloved or naked fists to one other. Throughout this history, potters, sculptors, painters, poets, novelists, cartoonists, song-writers, photographers and film-makers have been there to record and make sense of it all. In her encyclopaedic investigation, Kasia Boddy sheds new light on an elemental sports and struggle for dominance whose weapons are nothing more than fists. Boddy examines the shifting social, political and cultural resonances of this most visceral of sports, and shows how from Daniel Mendoza to Mike Tyson, boxers have embodied and enacted our anxieties about race, ethnicity, gender and sexuality. Looking afresh at everything from neoclassical sculpture to hip-hop lyrics, Boxing explores the way in which the history of boxing has intersected with the history of mass media, from cinema to radio to pay-per-view. The book also offers an intriguing new perspective on the work of such diverse figures as Henry Fielding, Spike Lee, Charlie Chaplin, Philip Roth, James Joyce, Mae West, Bertolt Brecht, and Charles Dickens. An all-encompassing study, Boxing ultimately reveals to us just how and why boxing has mattered so much to so many.

Now a USA Today and Amazon Charts Bestseller! “A story both powerful and enchanting: a don’t-miss novel in the greatest southern traditions of storytelling.” —Patti Callahan Henry, New York Times bestselling author When her grandmother’s will wrenches Sara back home, she learns more about Margaret Van Buren in the wake of her death than she ever knew in life. After her last remaining family member dies, Sara Jenkins goes home to The Hideaway, her grandmother Mags’s ramshackle B&B in Sweet Bay, Alabama. She intends to quickly tie up loose ends then return to her busy life and thriving antique shop in New Orleans. Instead, she learns Mags has willed The Hideaway to her and charged her with renovating it—no small task considering her grandmother’s best friends, a motley crew of senior citizens, still live there. Rather than hurrying back to New Orleans, Sara stays in Sweet Bay and begins the biggest house-rehabbing project of her career. Amid drywall dust, old memories, and a charming contractor, she discovers that slipping back into life at The Hideaway is easier than she expected. Then she discovers a box Mags left in the attic with clues to a life Sara never imagined for her grandmother. With help from Mags’s friends, Sara begins to piece together the mysterious life of bravery, passion, and choices that changed her grandmother’s destiny in both marvelous and devastating ways. When an opportunistic land developer threatens to seize The Hideaway, Sara is forced to make a choice—stay in Sweet Bay and fight for the house and the people she’s grown to love or leave again and return to her successful but solitary life in New Orleans. “Two endearing heroines and their poignant storylines of love lost and found make this the perfect book for an afternoon on the back porch with a glass of sweet tea.” —Karen White, New York Times bestselling author
