A novel by

 
 
A man's past calls to him as he relives his successes and his mistakes

Benjamin Federov has lived a thoroughly American life. The son of immigrants, husband to a lovely wife, and father to two healthy sons, he is successful in business, and blessed with good health. During a lazy 1964 summer afternoon at his son's baseball game, Ben reminisces on the triumphs and failures of his past fifty years. He recalls the comedy of his youth and the horrors of World War II, his alienation as a second-generation child in America and the tenderness of his first love. Insightful and evocative, Voices of a Summer Day is an enchanting story about a man's life and an unforgettable look at the power of memory.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Irwin Shaw including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author's estate.
