Book Image Not Available
Overview
What’s the story?? © Mendelson Joe, 2012 Penned by senior dyslexic, eccentric painter-musician Mendelson Joe, Family Embolism is a big short story (fiction) illustrated with over a dozen of Joe’s paintings. The story traces the flight and lives of fraternal twins who become orphaned at age six in Montréal, Canada after fleeing Czechoslovakia in 1948. Survival. Felix, the boy is by nature an observer. He’s a chronic note-taker who evolves into a self-taught social scientist who pens a treatise that rocks the literary world. Felix is an idealist and, by default, newfound fame shapes his path as enfant terrible in the world of philosophy. Wealth. Felix’s sister Ruth, a fetching pragmatist utilizes her countenance and savvy to become sole proprietor of Montréal’s most exclusive brothel to corporate kings, clergy, and common millionaires. Ruth ruled Montréal until she tired of paddling bottoms. Wealth. Family Embolism is also a telling testament to the power of mummyhood, the power of fraternal bond and the triumph of idealism despite all impediments. This ziggy-zaggy tale has erotic content.

About the author
Mendelson Joe Artist © Sept. 2, 2012 I was born in Toronto, Canada in 1944. My parents had emigrated from America earlier around the 1920’s. My sister Sybil was born in ’32. My father served in the Irish regiment reserves; he, Harry Mendelson was by profession a lawyer. My mother Elsie was a housewife. I’m told I was a nice boy. At age six, I had a conscious revelation that the world of humans was a world I could not embrace. I was the character E.T. from the great movie made by Mr. Spielberg. I discovered God around 1955. His name was Little Richard. I taught myself to play my sister’s guitar and, today at 68.1, I’m still learning how to play. At age nineteen I became a professional musician and supported myself through university. I did not belong at university. In 1968 I formed a bluesy band with Toronto guitarist Mike McKenna. We flourished and enjoyed commercial success with our first album STINK recorded in Soho, London, U.K. in 1969. I left the band in 1972 to find my way as a solo musician. I recorded my first of many solo records in late 1972. I played all instruments. In 1975, I found some acrylic paints in the garbage. I’m a garbage-picker. Painting came to me easily like music because as a self-taught extra-terrestrial, the learning never ceases if the passion stays lit. I’m still lit at 68.1. In 2009 I penned my first fiction titled Family Embolism. Why I wrote fiction is a mystery but I enjoyed the discovery. Writing is the most challenging of the media I choose because I’m dyslexic. I have no idea where I’m going except death awaits. Autobiographically, Mendelson Joe, Artist
