Twenty-three writers from the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) Writing Group in Concord, CA combine their talents for poetry and prose in this eclectic collection of memoir, non-fiction, poems and fiction. Stories of love, laughter, and life are eloquently captured with stark honesty, lots of humor and just a touch of the macabre. True tales, romance, and family secrets are here for the sampling, with a sprinkling of wit and wisdom.
“I hope you will read this book. While a few of the stories are clearly the work of first-timers, the five stars are for the many pieces that are magnificent. I must draw your attention to “An Echo of Rahma” by Maya Mitra Das. As an English girl I am somewhat familiar with the history of the Raj. We all know of the work of Mahatma Ghandi. But Maya’s story of her Bima needs to be known. It touched me so deeply that I could not even read it aloud to my husband for my tears were choking me. It is a model for any story which can tell the work of ordinary people in times of civil troubles. It is a story that we all should emulate today.” —Noreen
