The Invisible Wall

Postby Snoopy59 » Thu Apr 26, 2007 12:06 am

Are you looking for inspiration and motivation to write? Then read this book: 'The Invisible Wall' by Harry Bernstein.

Harry was 93 when he wrote this wonderful, charming memoir about his life. It was published when he was 96. He has written all his life, but started writing this novel after the death of his wife. With no future as such to look forward to, and only the past to think about, Harry set about writing this moving tale about working-class life, and of the boundaries that can be overcome by love. It is set in a small English mill town, near Manchester, in the early 1900s. And it explains the 'invisible wall' that divides Jewish families on one side of the street, from Christian families on the other.

It was a good read. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
