Los Angeles, CA, December 05, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- This month, Boryanabooks leaves aside big ponderous issues like Obama, Afghanistan, Palin and the like and takes an odd sidetrip to Las Vegas.
Lionel Rolfe, the author of Presidents & Near Presidents I Have Known, and seven other books, including such titles as Literary L.A. and The Uncommon Friendship of Yaltah Menuhin and Willa Cather, abandons history, religion, philosophy, literature, classical music and such and peers straight into the abyss of what Las Vegas is all about.
There’s argument about whether his effort goes down to near defeat.
Boryanabooks.com is a new website devoted to electronic publishing and will issue several new volumes over the next few months. On tap are two original books by Lionel Rolfe, one a novel, “The Misadventures of Ari Mendelsohn” and a non-fiction volume, “Reflections from Elsewhere.”
Two of his earlier volumes, “Literary L.A.” and “The Menuhins: A Family Odyssey,” are already available electronically. Original paperback editions of his “Fat Man on the Left: Four Decades in the Underground” and “The Uncommon Friendship of Yaltah Menuhin and Willa Cather” are also available, but they will soon be in electronic editions as well.
Leslie Evan’s “Outsider’s Reverie” is at the printer now, and will also be available electronically. Evans is a former Marxist author and present community activist in Los Angeles.
Nigey Lennon’s “Being Frank: My Time With Frank Zappa’ will also be published in a new edition soon.
Several new books by Phyl Van Ammers and Boyd Lewis, among others, are also slated to appear.
