"John A. Gotti who survived four trials and a parole violation hearing without a guilty verdict, in four years, now takes up his pen to tell the story of his father's unwavering dedication to the street, and how as his son he entered that life and then with his father's permission left the life of crime and put the "Family" behind him to live a legitimate life with his real family.

"In the Shadow of My Father" is the final installment in the trilogy of the Culhane family. In Book I "The Flowers of Eire" and Book II "Rory" we have journeyed from their humble beginnings in Ardara, County Donegal, Ireland to 19th Century England and Australia. In this last of the three novellas, Rory Culhane's son, Sergei, grows into manhood, beginning his studies in medicine, as did his father. After being wounded during Jameson's Raid in pre-Boer War South Africa, he returns home, falling in love with and marrying Edwina Gordon. She bears him two sons, Edwin and Thomas. Edwin follows in the Culhane men's footsteps, studying medicine. After his tour of duty aboard the HMS Furious in the World War I Royal Navy, he returns to Melbourne, resuming his life. Thomas, Edwin's younger brother, veers from the well-trodden path of his family and enters the priesthood, finally returning to take a post at the church in his ancestor's home town of Ardara. This family saga spans the years from the mid-nineteenth century to 1928 and returns the Culhanes full-circle to their roots.

Of all the myriad stars and celebrities Hollywood has produced, only a handful have achieved the fame - and, some would say, infamy - of Orson Welles, the creator and star of what is arguably the greatest film ever, Citizen Kane. Many books have been written about him, detailing his achievements as an artist as well as his foibles as a human being. None of them, however, has come so close to the real man as Chris Welles Feder does in this beautifully realised portrait of her father. In My Father's Shadow is a classic story of a life lived in the public eye, told with affection and the wide-eyed wonder of a daughter who never stopped believing that some day she would truly know and understand her elusive and larger-than-life father. The result is a moving and insightful look at life in the shadow of a legendary figure and an immensely entertaining story of growing up in the unreal reality of Hollywood.

Before the year 1989, that is, before the fall of Communism in Poland, the Communist government ordered the destruction of any documents that could have implicated them in the persecution of people opposed to the Communist party. The documents would have been proof of their ignominious actions. Therefore, they were taken away by the truckload from the archives and burned outside of the city limits. My documents were destroyed in Bialystok, as well. After turning down a job with the Polish Secret Police, they harassed me, and blacklisted me so I was unable to work. It was in Bialystok where my persecution was most severe. Nevertheless, most copies of my documents were preserved at the Ministry of Interior in Warsaw... ...The decision was made to escape immediately from the place of danger, and once again, we took what we could. Each of us, like a flock of geese with my father in the lead, slowly walked away from the river fortress toward the woods. ...The fog slowly subsided. When we reached a haystack, my father announced that this would now be our home. ...One night there came an announcement from an airplane with its engine turned off for a moment (so as not to drown out words). The announcement, made in Polish, was that everyone should leave this area because soon the war was going to be over. ...An air raid followed and the entire area was bombed... "I read it and I was touched. I finished reading Mr. Henry Czajewskis extraordinary life testament. The issues in the book are close to my heart because I know that it is not a work of his imagination, but rather a poignant truth. I shed tears when reading certain parts of this book and I was in awe of his enthusiasm, optimism, and sense of humor. What a wonderful piece of work " -- B.F., retired doctor of psychology Publishers website: http: //www.strategicpublishinggroup.com/title/InTheShadowOfMyGuardianAngel.html
