Albert Arvay, in his first try, has successfully combined his engineering writing skills with his paralegal background and his much earlier poetic/narrative style, establishing an identifiable, unique, and refreshing blend that dares to use informative technical teaching in plain English to illuminate and delightfully animate his remarkable and highly unusual experiences with a fascination that exceeds the products of mere imagination.This American born son of Hungarian immigrant parents, makes his writing debut by taking you back through his and his nine sibling's childhood years during the lean depression years of the late twenties and thirties, depicting: the fade-out of the Roaring Twenties, the Gaslight Era, Prohibition, the automobile, and World War II, among other things. You'll appreciate the humor-coated pathos of his family's enjoyable, intense struggle to adulthood and the overcoming of their pervasive adversity. He also adds the compassion of the childhood and adult years of several of his eight foster children, reared by him and his courageous and dauntlessly improvisatory wife. Don't be embarrassed if he wrenches a tear or two from your eyes in one instant, and by the end of the same paragraph replaces them with laughter. His adventures are empacted with thrills, and his courtroom scenes are not only authentic, but surprisingly original, as well. His war episodes and observations possess a startling uniqueness, and are presented from a refreshingly different, earthy viewpoint, as are the thrills of his prizefighting days. He lived the lifestyle of a man with a death wish who was determined to survive for the sake of his loved ones.
