Jeff Lawenda is an old college friend, so I am not unbiased. Having just finished reading his recently published, engrossing book, PATHWAYS: NOVELLAS AND STORIES OF NEW YORK I felt compelled to write and urge you all to read it. how deeply I was touched by this book. Each tale was emotional rich, and will introduce you to a cast of interesting, believalbe characters, many of whose issues will intersect with yours (as they did mine) and whose lives and dilemmas demonstrate how lifelong dynamics- individual and family, haunt, shape and limit all of us. The characters in his stories convey a persistent message: that although people are resilient, life is filled with difficulties, obstacles and grief, and all stories do not have happy endings. ThIs welcome touch of realism —that all stories do not have happy endings— is one of his greatest gifts. Many pieces of different stories spoke directly to me about issues I think about a lot: what it is that gives life meaning, what kindles love and more important, what qualities sustain and keep love alive, and how the resilience of the human spirit often surfaces in surprising ways. The likable and believable characters in his stories remind us that the key to a vibrant life involves the ability to do two things simultaneously: mourn our losses and tap into our innate grit and access our ability to start over, and over, and over.
