Assistant Professor of English Eric Wasserman has debut novel published

Assistant Professor of English Eric Wasserman has just published his first novel, Celluloid Strangers. Lovingly researched and written over the past decade, it tells the story of four brothers who have left their native northeast and converge in Los Angeles just after WWII ends. A lawyer, a mobster, a screenwriter, and a shopkeeper, each of these men makes a profound impact on the emerging landscape of postwar California as they deal with the impact their shared history—and our nation’s history—has had upon them.
