Sid Nachman has been called “one of the funniest and endearing story-tellers of his generation.” His latest work offers hope for women who have suffered abuse through a heart-wrenching story based on real life events.
WILMINGTON, NC, December 05, 2019 /Neptune100/ — Sid Nachman has announced the release of his latest novel, ‘Leena: An Abused, Bruised And Bloodied Woman’. The new book relates the story of a woman who suffered unspeakable abuse, but somehow managed to transmute her horrific past into a life filled with promise and hope. Nachman’s acerbic wit shines through on every page to create a book that is both wildly entertaining and revealing.
“I wrote this book because I was tired of hearing the same mansy-pamsy excuses that women give me who’ve gone through the same abuse. 1)’I love him. I can’t leave.’ 2)’I don’t have enough money to live on my own.’ 3)’At my age nobody will hire me.’ 4) ‘I don’t want to give up my standard of living’. 6)’All men are no good.’ Somehow, true grit, gumption and chutzpa got buried so deep in their psyche they lost their desire to make a better life for themselves.”
“Leena was my poster girl for just the opposite. She dreamed the impossible dream of making a better life for herself and made it come true.”
“I couldn’t help myself. I fell in love with her. I couldn’t resist. I just had to tell her story to the world. I hope readers like it. It was a story that was very difficult to write.”
Sid Nachman is also the author of ‘Bipolar Me’. ‘Bipolar Me’ provides a penetrating glimpse into the day-to-day experience of a man who dealt with a condition for which there was no name at the time – a time when such chemical imbalances might be diagnosed as a form of schizophrenia and could be treated with electric shock treatment or end up with the sufferer being locked away.
‘Bipolar Me’ has garnered high praise from readers and reviewers alike. Sid’s no-holds-barred writing style produces a work that is filled with hilarious stories that show us that life is just plain good. BookLover USA said that the book is “A roller coaster ride through the mind of one of the funniest and endearing story-tellers of his generation.” It is a highly entertaining memoir that allows readers a glimpse into the unfettered mind of a bipolar boy who never grows up until his hair turns white. Readers will get to see his world in black and white and vivid color and will feel what he feels when he feels like he weighs three thousand pounds and a minute later can leap over tall buildings. Sid’s life is a life gone wild that settles down when it’s almost too late.
‘Bipolar Me’ would bring me great joy if it can convince one person to never give up on themselves and try everyday with all the strength in their body to be a better human being.”
Sid’s first novel, ‘Strictly For Seniors’ is a nonfiction work of short stories about what happened to Sid “after breakfast on Delancey Street” in West Philly during the 30’s and 40’s when his Mom gave him a big hug and kiss and sent him on his way. Sid had great fun, survived bullying by hitting the bigger boys about the head with his violin case and developed his own singular brand of “street smarts”.
“I wrote ‘Strictly for Seniors’ to show the readers a world they should never forget and to let them know unequivocally that older people like me can still teach them a thing or two,” Nachman stated.
Nachman’s books have received fantastic reviews. One stated, “Like James Joyce, Sid Nachman can take the ordinary and turn it into magic with a fluency that’s imperceptible.” Another said “Sid’s stories touch the human soul with wit, charm and realism.”
