SURRENDER and other stories
(published March 2, 2022 by Kniemst Press)

This is my second book of true stories collected during travels to many destinations, with different cultures and languages. They remain memories of specific events by personal connections, letters, or stories told spanning generations of ordinary people in different parts of the world, sometimes in ordinary and sometimes in extraordinary circumstances – birth, death, and life in-between over generations.
Stories about the dispossessed or never possessed, the not-first-world countries, the spurned, returned, the almost failed, forgotten, abandoned, misunderstood, those lost in war and perestroika, those who gave up and those who did not give up. And when written in the first person, it is just to tell the story.

In everyone's life, no matter how high or low, there is a story to tell.
