Today's blog is about my book, MIAMI: A SURVIVOR'S TALE. This is a book that I was led to write. I poured all of my heart and soul into the story about the sad things that happened to the city I was born and raised in. The horrendous changes to a city that I spent most of my adult life. It is a book that must be read. It is getting great reviews, and now is your time to order a copy.
"Flailing the air with the sharp wit of coconut machete words, Frank Abrams cuts the head square off Miami, nestles it under his arm, and boldly walks through the Headless City, talking to himself. Everywhere people stare, eyes dumbed down, as plaintiff cries, barking dogs, gunshots and real estate developers drown together in a sunburned stew of history gone awry. Frank's unique perch as a 1950's era home boy haunted by a strange calling to get the hell out and his career as a lawyer to the most unusually downtrodden folk in America, give grace and substance to this mass of anecdotes about survival in the City That Never Weeps. No one has captured this history quite like Frank Abrams. Promises unkept, hurricanes unleashed, fraud that makes Baby Doc look like the Pople, drugs and pussy galore, road rage and riots amore, the explosion of multi-cultural egomania--it's all in this fast-paced manuscript which, at its core, tells the simple story of one family's struggle to survive Miami, ladeeez and gentlemen and children of all ages, as it vanishes before their very eyes."
