Literary legend Herbert Gold will be this month’s speaker for the Left Coast Writers® salon. From the beatniks to post-war Paris to San Francisco and more, Herbert Gold has been an important figure in many of the most iconic writing scenes of the century, all the while writing dozens of novels, short stories, essays, and an autobiography or two to boot. If you know what’s good for you, you’ll come and see one of the most well-known and respected authors of the last six decades who is, as the title of one of his more recent books so proudly proclaims, still alive!
An upbeat memoir to savor and admire, "Still Alive " proves that in your later years you can still be going strong . . . and having fun "Old age is a shipwreck," Charles de Gaulle once observed. Not so, says Herb Gold in this lively, often hilarious memoir of his first seven decades. He is clearly enjoying every moment to its fullest.
