THE BLURB @ THE BOOK!
“Dive into “MNEMOSYNE’S HAND” and find an existential theorist, inventively wicked satirist, and fully realized humanitarian named Charlie Brice. With a sharp eye for detail and an effervescent wit, Charlie unhesitatingly takes on everything from the snare drum to the psyche. He gives us characters like Jean Paul Sartre smoking cigarettes “to puff away the dread” and Old Manischewitz who “hooked a ferocious gefilte fish.” This is a poet of ideas and deep concern for others who observes our turbulent times with humor, wisdom and a gentle heart, a man who, along with many other poetic insights, offers words to honor the life of a dying alcoholic “Compadre” as well as to thank a “wife who made for me a place on this earth.”
