The Pigeon Man

Borrow Borrow Borrow
What happens when an unlikely threesome is thrown together by circumstance? Fate intervenes and three lives are changed forever. Danny Simon, a 13 year old Jewish refugee, lost his entire family in Poland to the Holocaust. Now he must adapt to a new life in America — with an aunt and uncle he never met. It is not easy for him. Images of his horrifying ordeal often come to visit him at night. And he must contend with neighborhood bullies. But his life takes a turn in a different direction when he tries to rescue a wounded pigeon. That's when he meets Mike Delaney; a man whose past is filled with secrets. And so, a Jewish refugee, a battle weary war veteran, and a wounded pigeon form an unlikely bond. Together they will learn valuable lessons from one another. And together they must find a way to heal old wounds. Only then can they begin life anew.

About the Author-
  • Joel began writing professionally at a later age. At first, he wrote short non-fiction articles for Black Belt Magazine and Inside Kung Fu. And then it was on to test passage writing for CTB McGraw-Hill. Later, (it took a while) he was able to get stories published for Cricket, a children's literary magazine. The Pigeon Man (Pants On Fire Press) is his first novelette. A Hanukah with Mazel (Kar-Ben Publication 2016) as well as The Capture of Rafael Ortega (Pants On Fire Press, 2016) are forthcoming. There are many, many authors he admires. Among those who have influenced his writing are: Robert Cormier, Gary Soto, I B Singer, Bernard Malamud, and E L Doctorow. Joel currently lives in Florida with his wife, his son, his two birds, and a tortoise. When not writing, Joel enjoys playing the viola or practicing Tai Chi Chuan.
