Below is an email I received from a Cornell Alum with a recently published book. Enjoy!

I am an alumnus who has recently published a book, “Comeuppance: Stories from the 1960s.”  I entered Cornell in the centennial year and my book was published in this sesquicentennial year. Fiction of the Sixties are not common, but I have been on radio and television on local stations and the book has received enthusiastic interest.


The book is a collection of eleven short stories with Cornell and Ithaca as the background setting. Four of the stories have been previously published by a handful of literary reviews.  Also, both the Portland Review and the San Francisco Book Review have rated the book five out of five stars.


If it’s not too much trouble, I would be grateful if you would forward this email to your regional Cornellians.  The book is available at Amazon.


Thanks so much.
