What was it like to see your first love,
Dottie?
"The surprise was that she has as vivid
memories as I do. She actually contra-
dicted me on some things as I remem-
bered them."

City: Beverly Hills
Kudos: Iceland Romance

When Brooklyn-born Ed Chalom was
drafted into the Army in 1953, he
assumed he'd be sent to an exotic
locale where he could find adventure
and romance. Instead, the 22-year-
old was stationed in Iceland — and
he found romance anyway. In "The
Heart Is a Funny Reservoir: A
Romantic Icelandic Memoir," Chalom
writes about his experiences as an
impressionable army sergeant and
what he found when he revisited
Iceland 48 years later.

How did you feel about going to
Iceland?
"Iceland was a discouraging shock
until I started to read 'LIR about it,
started to learn the language."

Know a Doer — someone of any age

As divorcees, did you hope to rekindle
the romance?
"No. It would be magic realism to
think this 48-year-old love would be
reborn. I did find the experience of
returning to Iceland emotionally mov-
ing.

Why did you return to Iceland after 48
years?
"It was my daughter Eve's idea. It was
like a chemical catalyst when she men-
tioned it. People I'd known there, expe-
riences I'd had — they all floated into
my mind."

How did your memoirs come to be
published?
"I wrote what is now the prologue for
Icelandair Magazine, the in-flight publi-
cation of Iceland Airlines. They put it
on the Internet. This publisher [the
Baltimore-based PublishAmerica] called
me. If I made it longer, he would pub-
lish it and distribute it both here and in
Iceland."

COVER. STORY

e've heard what you, our readers,
have had to say about how the
Jewish News is packaged. And we've
moved some sections around begin-
ning this week to make them flow better and
make it easier for you to stay on top of news,
information and opinion about and of interest to
the Detroit Jewish community.
Especially notable changes include a new Metro
section of local and regional news and, immedi-
ately following, a new World section of national
and international news. Also, Reality Check
columnist George Cantor has moved to the
Opinion section.
The For Openers section has been eliminated;
Doer Profile and Shabbat Candlelighting have
moved to page 3. Columnist Sy Manello now will
appear often in the Something Extra section.
In the coming weeks, we'll continue to fine-
tune what we do in a renewed effort to give you
the best possible JN each week.
We'd be delighted to hear your comments and
suggestions on these changes.
Shabbat Shalom!
