When retired radiologist Alain Haim moved to the United States from Bolivia more than 46 years ago, he had no idea he would one day become a writer. In “I Don’t Know What I’m Doing: A Well-Managed Life” (published by Balboa Press), Haim looks back at the many moments that have led to his life today as a retired professional, husband, father and author. The book is available for purchase at:

From the antics of his apartment tenants, to his travels with his wife, his adult children’s excursions, to ordinary trips to the shopping mall, Haim shares a world of observation about human beings, philosophy, science, music, travel, chess and the creative act of writing. The book offers Haim’s reflections on how he came to be the man he is today, as well his views on society at large.

Offering an inner adventure that tracks a life in its many facets, from the mundane to the extraordinary, Haim says his book will “appeal to anyone that wants to read an unconventional memoir.”

An excerpt from “I Don’t Know What I’m Doing”:
After living in this country for a while, I was asked on a couple of occasions how I liked it. “I like it a lot,” I said. “I’m an American by choice, not by accident.”
One day when I was in the middle of this manuscript, Ben, who was sitting next to me helping with the editing, asked, “How are you planning to end this story?”
I told him I would write, “This story has no end.”
