A brilliant selection of fiction, non-fiction and poetry by a living American author — Richard Shain Cohen

Experience an intensely personal history of life in our nation, in our times... as it was lived, and is being lived, by a passionate mind. Select, review, and experience: These books reach into private experience to record where we were on the eve of the war, under attack, changing and striving... through the political machinations which began to change us... through the assassinations, into today... but also: in the quiet of the forests and near the ocean, reflecting on love and spirituality, humanity and relationship, citizenship and responsibility, and on the strife and bonds of family.
