Inhaltsangabe: "Her walk was confident, slow and deliberate, not adolescently tentative but that of a woman aware of who she was. The soft thump of her bare soles touching the wooden planks produced an electric current that ran through me." Magnificent Melinda "His days, once filled with urgency and importance, now consist of completing crossword puzzles, washing dishes, making lunch, pacing, and spending hours on the Internet, where he keeps up with the most far-flung news, checks out job ideas, reads movie and book reviews, and looks into photography classes." Lunch With Louie "Walking swiftly south, I admire the welcoming marble columns and steps of the New York Public Library on the other side of Fifth. I imagine how soothing it would be to spend a few quiet hours there surrounded by the dry warmth of old books and dark wood and lamplight and look up from my book to watch the rain beat against the large arched windows." Lost Identities "A regular at Ned's would see Terry as a slow, long distance drinker, not a drunk. Just a guy deep in thought, traveling alone down some old roads for two to three hours with Johnny Walker Red as fuel and pilot." Charmed "The image of a Marine stepping off a landing craft to confront the enemy on a Pacific beach comes to mind. My father is certainly not the enemy, yet I'm afraid of what I'll see and hear from a man I barely know. Exiting the elevator on the fifteenth floor, I'm weighed down by our complex history." Honor Thy Father "She completes her park coverage with a loop around its full perimeter. Along this established route, she discreetly glances at each man of a certain age. Yet, she is not sure what she'd actually do or say if she does find Anthony." Translation ***SECURING HAPPINESS is far from a given, and the pathway to it often winding and vulnerable to ambush. Pathways delves into the lives of six ordinary New Yorkers as diverse as the city itself. While unknown to one another, they all share a sense of loss and-intentionally or not-embark on a journey to find elusive contentment. Each protagonist also shares a connection to historic Madison Square Park, the six-acre sanctuary located in Manhattan's Flatiron district. The park and New York are more than locations in Pathways. They are key characters, revealed in depth. Within two novellas and four short stories, readers will meet and become engaged with Michael - a young man obsessed with Melinda, an older woman; Steven - a television executive and victim of the Great Recession; Gina - a nurse in an Alzheimer's unit with attachment issues; Terry - a former New York Yankee pitcher who could have been a Hall of Famer; Jimmy - a criminal lawyer who visits Jake, his estranged dying father and retired NYPD detective; and Chella - a translator who arrives in New York from Colombia to hide from the Cali Cartel and begin a new life. These disparate New Yorkers suffer from emotional wounds inflicted by past events. While attempting to survive-in perhaps the world's most challenging city-they are confronted by a choice: to remain in a damaged state or to turn the corner and move on. Powerful forces, including colorful secondary characters, influence their decisions and are at the heart of each journey. *www.jefflawenda.com Jacket Design by Peter Cooper Jacket Photography by Peter Cooper Author Photograph by Bonnie Lawenda **
