Perspectives: Sophisticated Memoirs for an Unsophisticated World: A Let’s Write! Anthology 

anthology cover as photoPerspectives: Sophisticated Memoirs for an Unsophisticated World: A Let’s Write! Anthology is an intriguing collection of memoirs written by some Let’s Write! class members. The 83-page eBook is only 99 cents and worth every penny. (And the paperback is still a bargain at $3.60.)

After crying and laughing along with these authors, you will come away better for having been let in to the privacy of their life perspectives.

Here’s a small idea of what to expect in this collection of stories:

~ “An Unexpected Career: The Right Place at the Right Time” by Roy Teixeira

          The teenaged boy who landed the job of a lifetime without knowing it.

 

~ “Finding Belief: How Cancer Cured My Life” by Julee Sherman

          The woman who hears that dreaded word “cancer” and must face her fears in silence.

 

~ “All in Our Family: One Wife’s Nightmare” by Susan James

          The young wife and mother who finds out something terrible about her husband.

 

~ “Reflections of Our Childhood through My Brother’s Eyes: An Okie’s Memoir” by Pat Vegsund  

          A story filled with tears, laughter, and lots of heart about one Oklahoman family “movin’ on up”.

 

~ “Children of Sicilian Immigrants: A Love Story” by Libby Maggio

          True love from childhood to the separations and trials of War World II.  

 

~ “Kiss Your Ashes Goodbye! A One-Way Boat Trip” by Joann Bostow

          Can you talk about cremation with a sense of humor? Read this and see.

 

My only apology is that these sometimes fun, other times sad, always interesting stories are not longer! But stay tuned for these authors to be publishing books and/or blogs of their own in the not-too-distant future.

A quick and interesting read. Makes a good traveling book.
