    I am a Jewish ''Bloom'' from Boston, and Mr Tammeus was married

    I am a Jewish ''Bloom'' from Boston, and Mr Tammeus was married to his first wife of nearly 27 years who was a Bloom, too,  although of
    the Methodist branch, he told me. ''I wonder how the Methodist Blooms might be
    connected to the Jewish Blooms," he added.
    Bill then told me that he writes about what the one Jewish family in
    his hometown of Woodstock, Illinois had to endure -- as the one Jewish
    family there in those days -- in this very book:
    ''Woodstock: A Story of Middle Americans. '' So I love it.
