A Bridge to Eternity & Centuries Old and New
About the Book
‘A Bridge to Eternity’ and ‘Centuries Old and New’ both have as their starting point a work place in the modern American business world. The first is set in the posh headquarters of a large corporation, the second in a small Eastside restaurant. My heroes, Jonah Bellamy, the middle-aged assistant CEO, and Christoff Angelis, a teenager pedaling deliveries to midtown high rises with the dream of having his own restaurant, are equally honorable men. But whereas Jonah’s decency and well-meaning are betrayed by the dark politics of billionaire trustees, Christoff’s nobility is ultimately rewarded. Jonah is left to navigate the colder elements of our society, bereft of employment, family or friends, except for his loyal secretary, his old college roommate, and a good Samaritan he meets by chance. Yet Christoff, holding onto his dream and his joy of preparing food for others, finds love and companionship. The enduring devotion of his Greek mother adds a decisive ingredient to help him triumph over the pitfalls of starting a business and the vicissitudes of life.
