Memoirs of the Unaccomplished Man

Front Cover
AuthorHouse, Nov 11, 2005 - Biography & Autobiography - 104 pages

Jordan Schwartz is a quiet Jewish boy growing up in a middle class family in suburban New Jersey.  His world is centered around sports and education until high school hits and learning takes a back seat to girls and poker.  After a few accidents, learning learns that it better buckle up in that back seat, before Jordan takes it on a four-hour ride up to Syracuse University.  There, Jordan continues to break the speed limit completing college in three years in an effort to start doing what he loves - writing and talking about sports.  Jordan experiences some near misses and absolute whiffs before deciding to take a detour back to central New York.  Eight dreadful months in Ithaca remind Jordan that there’s no place like home, and so he returns to Middlesex County to start over with nothing accomplished.

About the author (2005)

This is my first book.  It is a compilation of autobiographical stories and poems.  I grew up in a suburban town in central New Jersey called East Brunswick before attending Syracuse University.  There, I majored in broadcast journalism and minored in English.  I have worked at several radio stations in New Jersey and New York, and I continue to free write in my spare time.
