Swinging in the Rain

(1967)
A novel by

 
 
During the war, while others fought, Hesketh planned, as a chocolate manufacturer, to put an end to world strife: Inter-Choc, a world union of chocolate makers, would bring man closer to man - through his sweet tooth. But Hesketh is thwarted by two more powerful urges - chauvinism and sex, the former Gallic, the latter British, but both indomitable.

Chaim Bermant (1929-1998) was born in Breslev, Poland and moved to Glasgow, Scotland at the age of 8. He was educated in Glasgow and became a teacher before joining Scottish TV and then Granada. Bermant became a prominent Anglo-Jewish journalist, and had a regular coloumn in The Jewish Chronicle and occasionally to the national press, particularly The Observer and The Daily Telegraph.

During his lifetime, Bermant wrote a number of scripts for both Radio and Television, including the BBC, as well as several for Anglia TV. Bermant's book, The Squire of Bor Shachor was serialized on the Radio and Bermant also appeared in several productions in person, including, in 1981, one of the BBC's 'Everyman' series. Bermant wrote a total of 31 books; his novels and non-fiction works reflect his sometimes controversial opinions and his observations on Anglo-Jewish society.
