"What we end up with is a deeper understanding of Lincoln as a flawed and haunted man, not just a character flattened between the pages of a history textbook. Charyn’s Lincoln is a real human, and someone, in the end, who enriches our lives for having known him." - The Bulletin

We are waiting patiently for our copy to listen to on the long book tour - I Am Abraham read by well-known voiceover artist Arthur Morey (I remember it by thinking of Arthur Murray - how old am I?)

I consider Rikki to be a good friend, we were colleagues at Court TV and she continues to have a stellar career, but her finest days may be ahead of her as "First Lady of the NEW NYPD."  With the Mayor de Blasio and Chirlane McCray, she and her husband, Police Commissioner Bill Bratton, they form an unbeatable team to make our City better, more livable, more FAIR and safer.  Here's to the team with four last names, who will make New York City great!

Did you read Lincoln in Love, Jerome Charyn's Valentine to Abe & Mary? "No historian, biographer, or myth-maker such as Carl Sandberg has ever written about his sensuality."

Nothing short of a RAVE: Christian Science Monitor reviews I Am Abraham for its 300 million worldwide subscribers in glowing terms!

"Jerome Charyn has given Lincoln a most appropriate present for what would have been his 205th birthday this month: rebirth not as a marble memorial but as a three-dimensional human who overcame much to save his nation."

Heartbreaking essay from sportswriter Roger Angell.  This one touched me. Had to share.

Nice touches in Richard Brookhiser's New York Times Sunday Book Review of I Am Abraham, like this:

"Charyn’s best touch is Lincoln’s voice: thoughtful, observant and droll, good for the long narrative haul. Its ground bass is Kentucky rube. Lincoln says “the-ay-ter” and seems amused that he continues to say so even though he has become president of the United States. He varies this tone with echoes of the Bible, poetry and speeches from the the-ay-ter. (He describes his wife, Mary, retreating after one of their fights “into her bedroom in the crepe of a demented queen.”)

Did  you catch Jerome Charyn on NPR Weekend Edition this morning? He and Scott Simon had a wonderful talk about Lincoln and JC's new novel, I Am Abraham.

I have been going to Yaffe Ruden for more than a dozen years. They are caring, careful, qualified, and kind. I do not fear aging with Drs. Yaffe and Ruden on my side. Not only have I referred many friends to this practice, I referred my significant other and my children. That shows the level of trust. When I meet someone who is also a Yaffe Ruden patient, we form a special bond. And I do meet them, because Yaffe Ruden patients are always bragging about how fortunate we are.
