Book: Hymie and the Angel by Norman Beimcategories: Book, Suspense, Nostalgia, Family, A Loving Childhood, Immigrant Life, Memoir
Norman Beimabout this book: "Hymie and the Angel" is both a memoir and a fantasy, a visit with relatives long since gone. I selected a picture of my father for the cover. I've set the Greek legend of Alcestis in Newark, New Jersey in the 1930s. This book features both suspense and love. The book is also a picture of an immigrant family, a group of people from an old country struggling and adapting to a new life, clinging to each other for support. It was a time when families were close and one grew up in a safe and loving surroundings.
This is a book that will appeal to everyone that has parents, that has a family. The response to all who have read this story has been most gratifying. At one reading a Barnes & Noble a young man came up to me and said, "This is the best book I have ever read." Writing this book has given me great satisfaction, as if I've paid part of a debt to my parents, relatives and friends for their love and support.
