    I was born in New York just after WWII when, because of the Depression and the war, the city seemed very little changed from the 1920s. I spent a lot of time listening to my grandparents, hearing what the area was like from when they were born in the 1880s, so it was like living in multiple time periods. I grew up in the suburbs, spent the next 20 years freelancing a design career in the Midwest and Northeast then followed that career to Los Angeles.

    Two guys and a dog load into a 10-year-old pickup truck and spend two months driving the perimeter of the United States.  It doesn't directly show, but over the course of the two months, the narrator falls in love with the driver -- and with the dog.

     

    I'll be posting Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

  2. The Reluctant Master 2. A Triumvirate of Saints

    These stories are written as exchanged e-mails and reading this way is an acquired taste.  But the first book of this series, Web Guys, has a small, loyal following, so here's the second.

  3. Moorpark Palms Letters 3. Moorpark Palms

    By RichEisbrouch, in Fiction. 08/07/2017 (Updated: 08/25/2017)

    These are the original, annual, New Year's letters that I sent to my friends from 1993 to 2001.  That was from two years after I moved into the building to a year-and-a-half after I left.

     

    As mentioned, the letters were the basis for the book, and they often overlap the same material.  But they cover more time and more characters, and are sometimes funnier because they're more compressed and somewhat more rude.

    Jake's adventures continue in this funny book about the small Los Angeles apartment building he lives in.  It's full of hot young people who spend a lot of time nearly naked around the pool.  But they're often bonkers.

  6. Jake & Conor 1. Moorpark Palms

    By RichEisbrouch, in Fiction. 04/24/2017 (Updated: 05/15/2017)

    This introduces Jake, the narrator of Moorpark Palms, a funny book of stories about a small Los Angeles apartment building in the 1990s.  Jake & Conor is a light little romance, once intertwined with the longer book.  I broke it out because it distracted from the apartment stories.
