Author of "A Brooklyn Memoir,"
"Beaver Street: A History of Modern Pornography," and
"Nowhere Man: The Final Days of John Lennon"
My mother, Eleanor Rosen, now 95 and living in Florida, is one of the main characters in A Brooklyn Memoir. Here she is in July 1957, 65 years ago, at the beach. I'm not sure which beach this is, though probably Manhattan or Brighton Beach, in Brooklyn, or Riis Park, in Queens. Those were the beaches we frequented.
A Brooklyn Memoir is sold out on Amazon and just about everywhere else. But I still have a few books in my private stash. Email me though the contact page if you'd like a signed copy.
