Steve Caplan Releases WELCOME HOME, SIRSteve Caplan Releases WELCOME HOME, SIR
by BWW News Desk - Jul 22, 2013

In 'Welcome Home, Sir,' Dr. Ethan Meyer is a biochemistry professor conducting scientific research and teaching at an American academic institution. Outwardly, he is a poster-child for success; he runs his laboratory with efficiency and care, projects an air of confidence, and is highly respected. Inwardly, Ethan feels as though he is coming apart at the seams, as the post-traumatic stress disorder he incurred in the Israeli army spirals into a cycle of tortuous hypochondria and threatens to unravel his personal life. Through a series of darkly humorous flashbacks, he realizes how his own military service-the apparent cause of his current condition-has molded his character and contributed to his academic successes. While fighting his personal demons and struggling to keep his family together, Ethan must also navigate a series of crises at work-culminating with the dismissal of a foreign student for fabricating lab results. As the departure of his wife and child for Israel leave him with no choice but to up-the-ante in the struggle to control his hypochondria, Ethan comes to realize that his student may have been framed, and he races against time to search for the truth. Dr. Steve Caplan received a Bachelor of Science degree and both masters and doctoral degrees from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. In 1998, he moved to Rockville, Maryland, where he pursued post-doctoral studies at the National Institutes of Health. Dr. Caplan is currently a principal investigator and Associate Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, Nebraska. He has won a number of prestigious awards for his research and mentorship and his laboratory is supported by the National Institutes of Health. Dr. Caplan teaches graduate and medical students, and mentors his own group of PhD students and post-doctoral fellows. He is the author of numerous peer reviewed scientific papers, as well as several published short stories. 'Welcome Home, Sir' is his second novel.

John Brantingham Releases Poetry Collection, EAST OF LOS ANGELESJohn Brantingham Releases Poetry Collection, EAST OF LOS ANGELES
by BWW News Desk - Jul 22, 2013

Anaphora Literary Press is pleased to promote the publication of 'East of Los Angeles,' a poetry collection by seasoned author John Brantingham. 'East of Los Angeles' follows life in that part of Los Angeles that few people dream of. Here, suburbs fade into the deserts and forests that ring the city. Here, Brantingham grew up with the ever present noise and light of the world's busiest freeway. The people he writes about are making the best of the lives that they have found. 'Our best writers weigh their words carefully, and John Brantingham is certainly one of them. He is a craftsman with a huge heart who cares deeply about people and stories and the chaos we call our lives. His characters are beautifully rendered, real and true, at once vulnerable and courageous. Wise and insightful, Brantingham's work brilliantly captures the light and darkness in us all.' -James Brown, author of The L.A. Diaries John Brantingham's work has appeared on Garrison Keillor's daily show Writer's Almanac, and more than 100 of his poems and stories have been published in the United States and England in magazines such as The Journal, Confrontation, Mobius, and Tears in the Fence. He was nominated for a Pushcart Prize for a poem in his chapbook Putting in a Window, which was published by Finishing Line Press. He is a full-time professor at Mt. San Antonio College in Southern California and one of two fiction editors of The Chiron Review, a nationally distributed literary magazine, and he lives happily east of Los Angeles with his wife, Annie, and their dog, Archie.
