#1 New York Times–bestselling author: On a lazy afternoon in 1964, a Jewish WWII veteran watches his son’s baseball game, and reflects on his past. Benjamin Federov has lived a thoroughly American life. The son of immigrants, husband to a lovely wife, and father to two healthy sons, he is successful in business, and blessed with good health. During a lazy 1964 summer afternoon at his son’s baseball game, Ben reminisces on the triumphs and failures of his past fifty years. He recalls the comedy of his youth and the horrors of World War II, his alienation as a second-generation child in America and the tenderness of his first love. Insightful and evocative, Voices of a Summer Day is an enchanting story about a man’s life and an unforgettable look at the power of memory. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Irwin Shaw including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.

THE VOICE OF THE VOICELESS is a voice from someone who has seen it necessary to say it out while others are silent. This poem book talks to you about things that happen in real life. Like the Adored one dedicated to my wife. It says You are the corner brick That builds the walls of my heart To make it a golden house In which love resides You are beauty of beauties A glittering galaxy of its own It is the look in your eyes That makes me paralyzed You are so pleasant like a dove Your teeth are so white They sparkled like polished ivory With a smile that drives me insane Sweet loving days we spent Cuddled together in love paradise Our wonderful planet of roses Which we can not afford to lose
