NEW YORK – In 1955, two years before the Soviets launched the first artificial Earth satellite, Sputnik 1, Leonid Poltava published his Ukrainian spy-novella “Will the Sun Rise Tomorrow” (Chy Zijde Zavtra Sontse). Captivating readers with cloak and dagger cliffhangers à la Tom Clancy or Ian Fleming, his narrative also explored serious concerns about tomorrow’s technology, foretelling a time when energy supplies of gas, oil and even uranium are almost exhausted, and parched food harvests loom. All told, “Will the Sun Rise Tomorrow” was a brave look into the future by an accomplished story teller.

NEW YORK – Prof. Alexander Motyl of Rutgers University has recently published “Bits and Piece: Fragmentary Memoirs” as a Kindle e-book.

As the author writes in the foreword, “I’ve never wanted to write a memoir, and, as ‘Bits and Pieces’ demonstrates, I haven’t. These ‘fragmentary memoirs’ consist of a handful or two of semi-biographical essays and interviews, interlaced with my drawings, poems and paintings, and with a novella (which may have more to say about me than the non-fiction pieces) thrown in for good measure. Some things are discussed in great detail; others are passed over in silence: readers will have to decide which. All memoirs are selective remembrances full of inconsistencies, lacunae, and contradictions; this one is no different.”
