Stories and Such

19 Sep

There are more stories up at 55 Words. The Readers Choice Awards is also on. This means you should go read the nominated stories and send in your votes. You have until October 1st but don’t procrastinate! Go now!

In other news, my family finally published my grandfather’s memoir, Bittersweet Memories. It’s been an interesting process that stretched a bit over three years. I’ve read various chunks of drafts but I’m looking forward to reading it in book form, cover-to-cover. From the back flap:

“Born into the quiet and remote steitl of Falticeni; embroiled in the fight against fascist dictatorship; entangled in the farce of the Communist regim; escape into the free world.

This is the life of one Jewish man, representative for so many of his generation.”
