Roxi Harms will be here Saturday October 20 to sign copies of her new book "The Upside of Hunger".
Born in an isolated village in eastern Hungary between the great wars, Adam yearned for more. More excitement, more freedom, more knowledge of the world… and often more food. Locked up for theft at age nine, Adam’s life took one tumultuous turn after another. From a twelve-year-old stablehand on a noble estate to a fifteen-year-old shivering in a foxhole on the Eastern Front, Adam’s hunger for a bigger life led him into spine-tingling adventures, mind-numbing horror, heartbreaking tears, and terrifying brushes with death. Awakening in a makeshift hospital with a shattered left leg, Adam was catapulted into a series of captures and narrow escapes from enemy forces as Europe reeled from the final destruction and horror of WWII. Never standing still, he journeyed through war-torn landscapes to find and reunite his family, and began to build a life from the ashes, until the results of a medical examination at an American Embassy in Germany changed the course of his future forever.
