WILMINGTON, NC, November 19, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Sid Nachman is a writer who is known for his acerbic wit and his ability to knock readers to the floor in fits of laughter. His writing style is unlike any other. He is especially adept at creating works that center around his Jewish upbringing, spinning tales that seem too funny to be true - but they are.
He has turned his attention to travel and has released a new travel book entitled, 'Take a Trip with Morris the Trailer and Two Fruitcakes Down the Yellow Brick Road'. While his road trip with his wife and a talking trailer does not take him to Kansas, it does take him nearly everywhere else - or so it seems.
In this new book, readers can discover customs and cultures they never knew existed. Get sage and oregano advice from Morris, who rarely stops talking. Share the absurd thoughts in the minds of Sammy and Libby, the two other main characters in this travelogue.
Their names have been changed, not to protect them, but just because their existing names didn't seem right. Try not to judge them too harshly, since there's more than a faint likelihood your mind may be just as badly distorted as theirs. This trip was the dream of a lifetime for all three of them. It actually happened, something few of us will ever experience. Readers can just sit back, relax, and enjoy their great adventure.
Sid described part of that road trip in his trademark style:
"We visited a gas station that sold grand pianos and seven foot bears and camped at a lake where ducks walked on fishes, and marveled at the half finished statue of Crazy Horse on his stallion carved on the side of a mountain."
The new book is available at Amazon in softcover format.
Sid Nachman was the first person in the USA to be diagnosed bipolar. Reviewers have called his memoir, 'Bipolar Me', "a roller coaster ride through the mind of one of the funniest and endearing story-tellers of his generation." That story is now available in video format on Youtube, Vimeo and on Amazon Fire TV and Roku. The video biopic features Sid describing many of the events of his life, presented in a wry and sardonic style that is his trademark. The video is available at https://youtu.be/Q-j_u6ZFF1I, Vimeo at https://vimeo.com/483258605 and on Amazon Fire TV and Roku.
'Bipolar Me' provides an insightful and captivating glimpse into the day-to-day experience of a man who dealt with this condition - during a time when this type of affliction might be diagnosed as a form of schizophrenia. In those days the treatment might involve electric shock treatment or, in severe cases, being locked away.
'Bipolar Me' has garnered high praise from readers and reviewers alike. Sid's no-holds-barred writing style produces a work that is filled with hilarious stories that show us that life is just plain good. It is a highly entertaining memoir that allows readers a glimpse into the unfettered mind of a bipolar boy who never grows up until his hair turns white. Readers will get to see his world in black and white and vivid color and will feel what he feels when he feels like he weighs three thousand pounds and a minute later can leap over tall buildings. Sid's life is a life gone wild that settles down only when it's almost too late.
Sid's first book, 'Strictly For Seniors' is a nonfiction work of short stories about what happened to Sid "after breakfast on Delancey Street" in West Philly during the 30's and 40's when his Mom gave him a big hug and kiss and sent him on his way. Sid had great fun, survived bullying by hitting the bigger boys about the head with his violin case and developed his own singular brand of "street smarts".
He also published 'Leena – An Abused Bruised and Bloodied Woman', a true account of a little girl who climbs out of mind-boggling mental and physical abuse, faces prejudice and misunderstanding as an adult, knocks the chip off her shoulder and leads a normal and healthy life.
Nachman's books have received fantastic reviews. One stated, "Like James Joyce, Sid Nachman can take the ordinary and turn it into magic with a fluency that's imperceptible." Another said "Sid's stories touch the human soul with wit, charm and realism."
