I Wonder Where I Went
In the past two years I've noticed something about my writing that has changed and I am not happy with what I see. As a new widow turning age sixty I wrote with passion. No subject was taboo. Too many widow books spoke of grief, I wanted to talk about getti...

You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover . . .

Early photo of Cliff Graubart at The Old New York Book Shop. (Photo from The Old New York Bookshop Press )          Quirky,
