An unforgettable tale of mystery, romance and family love that explores the complex nature of humanity.

Inspired by a family myth concerning an unusual person of legendary status, author Joel Z Wagman let imagination, innate curiosity and life experiences blend into a book: ‘The Manuscript: The Life and Times of James Weymore’ (published by Xlibris),which took him 40 years to complete.

A unique and compelling work of fiction, it renders a history of lost dreams and renewal, set against a vast landscape of suspense, hope, faith and struggle; which transports the reader, on a journey, commencing in 1892 Czarist Russia that ends in France during 1978. Set in five cities, with most of the action taking place in Toronto and southern Ontario, the book is an incisive portrayal of life’s irrationality. The gripping story spanning three generations comprises a contemporary morality tale of conflicting forces of good and evil. All events emanate from the accidental and unnoticed dropping of a few flecks of cigar-ash upon a Russian nobleman's frockcoat sleeve at his daughter's engagement ball. From that seemingly innocuous unheralded event, global industries are built, great fortunes gained and lost, and a nation forever changed.

Wagman’s “Manuscript”, is an unforgettable tale of mystery, romance and family love that explores the complex nature of humanity. With its richly drawn characters and riveting twists and turns, readers learn the true value of unyielding hope and faith amidst conflict, struggle and renewal.
