About the Book
Jack Nimersheim, New York Times Best-Selling author of more than twenty books, wrote a lot, once he found himself self-isolating during the early days of the 2020 coronavirus pandemic.
Now these writings, originally a series of daily essays posted on Facebook, have been collected into yet another Nimersheim book, "Ruminations: How I survived the coronavirus and other miscellaneous musings from inside self-isolation."
Mr. Nimersheim manages to chronicle this otherwise unsettling time with humor and optimism, as he observes and analyses how we responded to the unique challenges of a global pandemic. Sprinkled throughout are more personal essays about events from his life with which almost everyone can identify or, at the very least, be entertained by.
Combination memoir and social commentary, "Ruminations" is a compelling and provocative read that deserves to be on everyone's bookshelf.
A lot of people write. I'm one of the fortunate few who actually have had their writing published and read by others. This published writing includes twenty-some books, along with a couple dozen science-fiction stories that managed to get me nominated for the "Astounding Award for Best New SF Writer." Again, fortunate...and grateful for my good fortune. Would that all writers could be this lucky.
