I Meant to Divorce My Wife Not My Daughter: The Escape of an Orthodox Jew from the Bondage of Religion and a Match Made in Heaven (Paperback)
Zev Lewinson (1953 - going strong) was born in Chicago, Ill., grew up in West Orange, NJ, and graduated from Johns Hopkins University. Very shy as a child, Lewinson became a voracious reader - the first ingredient towards becoming a great writer. His been there/done that life, has balanced many diverse pursuits and interests, among them, marriage, writing, teaching, and diamond dealing. Lewinson's eclectic writing skills have allowed him to produce a wide range of beautiful stories for children. Several of the stories are a result of situations he experienced with his own five children as they grew up. Accolades of intense admiration for Lewinson's stories adorn the back cover's of his books. Random House, Harper Collins, Sterling Lord Literistic, Skyhorse Publishing, and many other famous publishers and agents, praise Lewinson's work in an ongoing choir of adoration as follows: "amusing and original ... wonderfully creative ... obviously very talented ... tender and playful ... possesses a knack for kid-appealing writing ...." Children go wild over his stories when Lewinson does readings at public libraries around the country - a difficult task for the still shy sixty-nine-year-old author. Every one of Lewinson's stories inspire children to proclaim, "It's my favorite story!" A true believer in Malala Yousafzai's words, "One child, one teacher, one book, and one pen can change the world," Lewinson hopes that his stories will ignite children with a true lifelong passion for reading. To date, Lewinson has fourteen published stories, with over two dozen manuscripts waiting impatiently for their turn to be illustrated.
