Guest Post by Uvi Poznansky:

Apart From Love

Summer’s come to a close, the breath of autumn is here
Time for reflection, time for a break
But before the change of seasons, this year

Listen to my whispers, and make no mistake–

As golden leaves drift, rustling in the air
Come cuddle with me, open my cover
Apart From Love, there’s not a moment to spare
Leaf through my story, it’s yours to discover

Not for Everyone!

According to one reviewer, this book is for “Introspective readers who love complex characters, Sam Shepard fans, poets, artists, film noir buffs.”

Another reviewer says, “Recommend this book to anyone who would like to read something a little bit different from the normal run of fiction.”

Book Description:

Written with passionate conviction, this story is being told by two of its characters: Ben, a twenty-seven years old student, and Anita, a plain-spoken, spunky, uneducated redhead, freshly married to Lenny, his aging father. Behind his back, Ben and Anita find themselves increasingly drawn to each other. They take turns using an old tape recorder to express their most intimate thoughts, not realizing at first that their voices are being captured by him.

Meanwhile, Lenny is trying to keep a secret from both of them: his ex-wife, Ben’s mother, a talented pianist, has been stricken with an early-onset alzheimer. Taking care of her gradually weighs him down. What emerges in these characters is a struggle, a desperate, daring struggle to find a path out of conflicts, out of isolation, from guilt to forgiveness.
