Leah Ain Globe looks at this world that she was born into ninety-eight years ago (until 120!) with a rich mix of experience, wisdom, humor, and creative flair. An artist as well as a writer, Mrs. Globe wields her pen with the same finesse that she does her paintbrush. Her words are like finely wrought brushstrokes; her canvas is as broad as life itself. In this marvelous collection of short vignettes and stories, Mrs. Globe draws upon her memories of the many encounters she has had with the unusual, the exceptional, occasionally the eccentric. Her tales of then and now, of life in immigrant America and life in immigrant Israel, will bring a glint of recognition, a sparkle of laughter, a hint of a tear to the reader's eye. We read of a little girl searching for beauty amidst the poverty of New York in 1912 and a 1950's woman whose heart yearns only for a Persian lamb coat. We laugh at thrifty Daniel and his two left shoes and sympathize with Aunt Sophie, whose aliyah to Israel is so very dfficult. Come and meet the many interesting and wonderful characters who inhabit these pages. And, especially, come and join a delightful author, born at the dawn of the twentieth century, as she prepares to enter her second hundred years.
