Recent work has appeared in the
Christian Science Monitor.
Robert Newman wanted his mother
to have a happier time than she found
during her last years at a senior resi-
dence. He was able to do that in his
own mind by making her the core of
a character in a novel that includes a
late-in-life love story.
You Never Know — Three Jewish
Families in the Twentieth Century:
Stories of Struggle and Love (Xlibris;
$15.99) intertwines the lives of two
families in Detroit and one in New
York City.
"The book is for younger and older
audiences," says Newman, 81, who
grew up in the Motor City and now
lives in Brooklyn. "Most of the novel is
about younger people."
Newman, retired from taking on
public relations and editing projects
for the pharmaceutical industry,
ultimately wants his children and
grandchildren to learn about the past
that becomes backdrop for his book.
As he remembers his years in Detroit,
the author recalls his bar mitzvah at
Congregation B'nai David.
"I hope readers will learn that
everything is possible," says Newman,
who also has found a mature relation-
ship with Bette Alexander, an artist
who designed the book cover. "We can

struggle through crises when we're
younger and then find love later."
Information on the book is at www.
bobyouneverknow.com .
Srulik (Sol) Stein also developed a
novel based on reality. He got to know
a former member of Detroit's infa-
mous Purple Gang, a man who had
been in prison, and developed a larger
story from the stories he heard.
The Stand-Up Guy (iUniverse;
$15.95) is a mystery involving Jewish
characters entrenched in the Motor
City's past.
"The novel has to do with the
importance of loyalty,' says Stein, 85,
of West Bloomfield, an attorney. "It's
about three young guys at the time of
Prohibition and their connection to a
murder."
Stein, who has been active with the
Jewish War Veterans, started thinking
about a book when the former gang
member suggested a memoir about
his criminal life. After the man died,
Stein decided a novel would be more
interesting.
"I always wanted to publish a book:'
says Stein, who was his high school
newspaper editor and has written
some short stories. "I think this book
shows it wasn't so bad growing up in
the times I describe. It helped people
become street smart."

striking out three out of the six
batters he faced. One of those
strikeout victims was Milwaukee
Brewer slugger Ryan Braun, 25. A
Chicago Tribune reporter asked
Poreda about how he felt pitching
to another Jewish player.
Poreda replied: "I actually
thought about that when
he was coming up, the
battle of the Jews. But
he's a great player, amaz-
ing; and I was just trying
to do my best."
Braun, whose father
Golden Arm

is Jewish, isn't religious.
