Glimpses of Happiness

The human interest book that is a labor of love and laughter for the sole - will be donating a percentage of book sales to support the great services at SOME.

Featuring lighthearted, easy reading, Seinfeld-like vignettes about topics of everyday life. Humor that will make the reader smile and laugh and say yes, this can happen to me too!

Topics that everyone can identify with such as arts and entertainment, clothing and fashion, commentaries, communication, reading, writing, listening, speaking, dining, food, everyday life, families, babies, kids and children, medical, pets, events, socializing, sports, recreation, travel, transportation, weather and much, much, more.

The target audience for this book is far-reaching. From moms, dad, kids, doctors, lawyers, actors, comedians, movie buffs, teachers, just everyday folks.

As you read these lighthearted heartfelt glimpses into life I am sure you will find that everyone can relate to these in one way or another.

 "Glimpses of Happiness, Laughter for the Soul” is a book full of

little time capsules reminding us where we were, and how far we have
come, as a society riding a wave of transformation from the industrial
age to the information age. These are reminders of our common
heritage, and regardless of how our lives and those around us change,
some basic emotions and rites of passage will always be the same.
Thank you Jerome Perlmutter for capturing bits of Americana from our
past, so that we can see the connections to our future.
