RYE, N.Y. (PRWEB) November 20, 2018
Eileen Kent, a former associate producer of a local news show has completed her new book “Carry on in Laughter”: which weaves 18 non-fiction and fictional stories that bring generations together in friendship, fun, love and sometimes sadness. There is the pain of a parent’s early death, a caring relationship between a nurse and a young hospital patient and then fun and games on a Manhattan street. Kent also creates a montage of fictional stories showing love lost, an advertising executive longing for another life, a distraught homeless woman begging on the streets, a compulsive gambler struggling with his addiction and two childhood sweethearts reunited under dire circumstances.
Kent shares, “Magical times are described on the lure of New York City streets during the summers of the 1940’s and 50’s. The kids created their games without parental supervision. They would melt crayons inside bottle caps for street checkers. Thrown out broom sticks became stickball bats. Cell phones were not even invented then. For 11-year olds caring for a pet mouse in a hidden place in a basement taught them love and responsibility. Archie Comics was the teens’ social commentator. The kids would sit on the stoop in a group reading and commenting on the characters. Then there were glorious beach days, a transition to high school and a take-off on a pair of teddy bears and then life in the duck world.”
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Eileen Kent’s nostalgic collection of tales about life in New York City in the 1940’s and 1950’s.
