GLENDALE, Ariz. (PRWEB) January 23, 2013

In his new book, “A Stirring of the Air, a Shifting of the Light: A Memoir” (published by iUniverse), Wayne Luckmann looks back on growing up in Milwaukee’s South Side during the 1930s and 1940s, celebrating his family, childhood friends, and many others who have played meaningful roles in his life.
The recollections in “A Stirring of the Air, a Shifting of the Light” preserve moments and memories of things past that were rich in flesh and blood and bone. Although they are now only flickering mental images, they made Luckmann who he is, and they have profound meaning for anyone seeking a bridge to the past and an understanding of self.
“My book presents in vivid detail the people who existed and the events that took place in a former era,” Luckmann shares, “yet offers a description of lessons learned from family relationships that might help others gain perspective about how events in their lives have influenced what has happened in their own family.”
