Inhaltsangabe: Imagine discovering something so profound it could change the entire world for the better. David Posey believes he has. David is autistic and along with his brother Joe, suffered as a child. David has spent his fifty years wanting to be normal, loved and engaged in life, but simply can't get beyond his past and his disability. David believes that what most people believe is racism is actually something else. When he demonstrates it, people change immediately and for the better. It is through this device he believes he can heal the world and heal himself. David's brother Joe was the best high school basketball player in America and the events that ruined David's life were brought about by Joe's pursuit of his dream. Joe survived and prospered despite a nightmarish journey in Viet Nam. The Waiting Room tells the multigenerational story of a melting pot American family from David and Joe's childhood onward. David is the voice. He builds a relationship with Amanda, a co-worker in the market research firm where he operates the waiting room for interview subjects. Despite his inability to express himself with any device but a quoted song lyric or a line from a television show he manages to tell her his story.   He is building a new life until his big Uncle Bjorn, a giant from the north woods of Maine, explains real life as he sees it; both the good and the bad. This causes David to reverse directions and he finally reveals the horrors and the truth of his childhood to Amanda. Despite all the pain that falls into each life, David survives, achieves, and finds love.

Vom Autor: I loved writing this book.  It contains all the elements that people enjoy in a good novel.  Two brothers, a giant crazy uncle who appears larger than life to his nephews, family squabbles and deep love, good hard hitting action... there is even a love story in here.  And best of all it spans four decades and allowed me to examine the world through the eyes of boys, teens, young men, and the old.  It was a great book to write and I hope everyone who reads it enjoys it as much as I did writing it.

Buchbeschreibung Createspace, United States, 2011. Paperback. Buchzustand: New. 213 x 140 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The CONTENT OF CHARACTER takes a good hard look at what it means to be human, with our capacity for bigotry, love, creativity and conflict. It looks at the ways we love one another and explores the struggles we inflict upon ourselves and each other. The CONTENT OF CHARACTER tells a story about the middle ages of the 20th century and how it crashed into 2015. Joe Posey is the best basketball player in the country. David Posey suffers from Asperger s Syndrome. Uncle Bjorn is the larger-than-life logger and wild man from the mountains of Maine who saves their lives. It gets better: there are rumors that David and Joe s grandfather might be in the Mafia, their dad is a world-class racist, and their mother hides a bottle of whiskey over the sink. It s just another American family in other words. David tells the story of his childhood watching his brother play basketball. It was an amazing time; Joe was a new breed of player, a cross between Pistol Pete Maravich and Magic Johnson and he could throw no-look passes behind his back while spinning high and faking a dunk only to shovel the ball to a teammate for an easy shot. He was amazing. But there was trouble, lots of trouble. The times then were hard and racism was rampant. But racism cuts two ways and while Joe started varsity at point guard, some thought it was because he was white. David was having his own troubles. Everyone thought - because he acted so strangely - that he was retarded and they wanted to send him to that place . No one was talking about autism back then and he had to battle for every coherent sentence he spoke. David learned to write out his thoughts and tell his story with the printed word and by the time he grew to be a man he felt he had discovered something profound. David learned that people are rarely racist. He discovered the idea of culturalism, a word he coined. He discovered that most people. well, that would be giving it away, wouldn t it? Just be sure that the story is told all the way to the end. And it is a good story: Viet Nam, US Marines, the Illinois Basketball Championship, old Martin guitars, gang fights, and two boy s battle against pure evil. This is really a great American novel and leaves every reader wishing the story would not end. Oh, and it s a love story, too. Buchnummer des Verkäufers APC9781461005377
