Book Description

Inadmissible by Tamer Elsayed

The Indie Book of the Day for 28th of March, 2015!

Genre: Biography, True Crime

Inadmissible—featured in Science Magazine—chronicles the unlikely story of a young Egyptian who emigrated to the U.S. in pursuit of the American dream, and how his one mistake—claiming to be a U.S. citizen in order to qualify for federal student loans—landed him behind bars along with some of America’s most notorious offenders, and slated him for immediate deportation upon the end of his prison term.

Five years later, however, the Egyptian student would earn his PhD from one of the finest scientific research universities in the U.S.—Caltech—only to find himself, once again, on the wrong end of the American justice system. Only this time the separation from his American daughter would be forever, as he remains in the eyes of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement: Inadmissible.

The memoir chronicles the flaws in the American justice system that mark felons for a lifetime of discrimination, and immigration laws that rip apart families and leave the most vulnerable—the children—without parents.

It’s an account of innocence and youth; of persistence and heartbreak; of unsuspecting underdogs and egotistical overlords. But ultimately it’s the true tale of one man’s journey, lived through believing in himself and believing in the good hearts of the people who stuck by him.

His recent memoir, Inadmissible (featured in Science Magazine), tells the story of his emigration from Egypt to the U.S. in pursuit of the American dream, and how his one mistake–claiming to be a citizen in order to qualify for federal student loans–landed him behind bars along with some of America’s most notorious offenders. Five years later, however, he would earn his PhD from one of the finest scientific research universities in the U.S.–Caltech–only to find himself, once again, on the wrong end of the American justice system. Only this time the separation from his American daughter would be forever, as he remains in the eyes of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement: Inadmissible. It’s an account of innocence and youth; of persistence and heartbreak; of unsuspecting underdogs and egotistical overlords. But ultimately it’s the true tale of one man’s journey, lived through believing in himself and believing in the good hearts of the people who stuck by him.

The white prisoner by Ognian Georgiev

Book Description

The white prisoner by Ognian Georgiev

The Indie Book of the Day for 19th of December, 2014!

Genre: Biography, Sports

This wasn’t the first time Galabin Boevski felt oppressed. He had suffered the atrocious legacy of communism and the lack of support that a talented athlete like him should otherwise expect from his motherland.

It had been a week since his arrest. He’d spent a night in the jail of Sao Paulo’s airport, then transferred to another Brazilian prison for temporary detention. Now he was in Itai, a prison for foreigners, full of people from all over the world.

His memories kept rushing in and he kept going over the unfortunate events over and over. What went wrong? He spent his first night in jail with 1500 prisoners who were serving their sentences there – murderers, rapists, fraudsters and thieves, but the majority of them people like him – accused of drug trafficking. “I’m not a mule,” he thought, “I am Galabin Boevski. Legendary weightlifter and Olympic champion, not a criminal!”

…based on a true story…

Book Description

The Accidental Anarchist by Bryna Kranzler

The Indie Book of the Day for 27th of April, 2013!

Genre: History, Biography

By the time he was twenty-five years old, Jacob Marateck had been a Jewish officer in the notoriously anti-Semitic Russian army during the Russo-Japanese War, a revolutionary who sought to overthrow the Czar, and sentenced to death three times. After avoiding the firing squad for the final, unlikely time, he escaped from a Siberian forced labor camp with Warsaw’s colorful “King of Thieves.” Together, the two struggled to survive and obtain false papers to travel home while avoiding the Secret Police. Told from Marateck’s uniquely humorous perspective, The Accidental Anarchist is the remarkable, true story of an ordinary man made extraordinary by participating in the history-making events of the 1900s in Russia and Poland. Throughout all the hardships he endured, he never lost his optimism, which was key to his survival.

At Barnard College, I majored in Program in the Arts: Writing. My focus was on playwriting, and a short play I wrote during that time won the school’s award for dramatic writing. My first full-length play, “Do Hermaphrodites Reproduce Only in the Spring?” was a finalist in the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center Competition, and was scheduled for production twice: the first time, the theater owner died, and the season was shut down; the second time, the director committed suicide. For the benefit of the arts community, I thought it best to get out of playwriting.

But economic necessity drove me to get a real (read ‘paying’) job, and I spent fifteen years in marketing and public relation positions with consumer product, high-tech and health care companies. Somewhere between these jobs, I returned to school and earned my M.B.A. from Yale School of Organization and Management.

When I was finally able to return my focus to writing, I found that my interests had shifted to fiction, and more recently to narrative, or ‘creative,’ non-fiction, as in THE ACCIDENTAL ANARCHIST. I have also written two (not-ready-for-prime-time) novels, newspaper articles, and personal essays. In addition, there is a poem I have been working on for about ten years.
