About the arts and ideas - on my novels and literature, music, and art

A new book about Beethoven gathers together (and completely rewrites and supplements) my blog posts on Beethoven into a short introduction to the composer, Ways of Hearing Beethoven, which I hope to see published. My novel The Fall of the Berlin Wall, completed a year ago, is about musicians and particularly the intense, irrepressible daughter of the legendary pianist featured in my previous novel Hungry Generations, now fifteen years after those events. Five years ago, my 2015 novel, The Ash Tree, was published by West of West Books in conjunction with the April 24, 2015 centenary of the Armenian genocide; it's about an Armenian-American family and the sweep of their history in the twentieth century - particularly from the points of view of two women in the family.
There are three other novels of mine, which I would love to see published. One is Pathological States, about a physician's family in L.A. in 1962. Another is Hungry Generations, about a young composer's friendship in L.A. with the family of a virtuoso pianist, published on demand by iUniverse, which I think would be of value to a conventional publisher. A Burnt Offering - a fable (a full rewriting and expansion of my earlier Acts of Terror and Contrition - a nuclear fable) is my political novella about Israel and its reactions to the possibility of a war with Iran (with the fear that it will be a nuclear war).

A New Novel - A Burnt Offering


I've published through Amazon (including Kindle) a much revised and enlarged version of my 2011 retelling in contemporary Israel of the Sacrifice of Isaac, updated now to the possibility of a nuclear exchange with Iran, and adding newly developed characters. Its title is "A Burnt Offering - a fable and linked story." The latter refers to a character appearing in the fable, Dr. Morris Weisberg, who is fully introduced by the story and is the subject of an unpublished novel of mine, "Pathological States." Here's an image of the cover, and to the right there should be a live link to the Amazon site for "A Burnt Offering." The photo on the cover conveys an impression of two main characters, Ari and Elena Schneider.
