In Search of the Golden Shiksa

Rated 5.00/5 based on 2 reviews
Call me Weinstein. I have lived my life of quiet desperation dominated by women. Well, not really dominated by them. More like dominated by the need for them. Controlled by the lack thereof and the pursuit therein. I have done it all. Singles dances, volleyball games, bike rides, video dating, even (God Forbid), folk dancing. I have done it all in search of the Golden Shiksa. More

About Roger Levine

I was born, appropriately enough, on April Fools’ Day, 1950, and brought up in Baldwin, Long Island, graduating from high school in 1968. I started at SUNY Binghamton (Harpur College) that year and ultimately graduated in 1974 (after a two year hiatus in Canada) with a degree in Philosophy.

From early on I discovered I had the ability to make people laugh as well as certain musical proclivities. During college, I worked as a musician/comedian, and despite my degree in Philosophy (or perhaps because of it), after graduating I moved to Boston and continued working at folk and comedy clubs around the Northeast. I got married and needing to make more than the substance living my artistic ventures were providing, got into sales (office equipment) because that’s what my father did. As it turned out I was pretty good at it and prospered in the booming Massachusetts economy of the time. Unfortunately, my marriage did not prosper as well, and I got divorced and began the quest that is the central focus of In Search of the Golden Shiksa. When the Massachusetts economy died in the early 1990’s, I moved to Florida with my new wife, and unable to make a living down there, decided to go to law school (Northeastern University) from which I graduated in 1996. Unemployable, I was forced to go into practice by myself and discovered an entrepreneur hidden within, evolving a fairly successful Elder Law practice in the last fifteen years with two offices and a monthly radio show. I presently live in Canton, Massachusetts (south of Boston) with my wife, Donna, two sons, Jake (17) and Ben (13), as well as the three and a half cats.

Although primarily concerned with career and family pursuits, the music, comedy and writing have never left me. Two unexpected bursts of creative flow (at age twenty for the music and my early forties for the books) where songs and stories seemed to channel through me (I’m not kidding), left me with a body of work I am trying to advance on a commercial level. In the spare time that I’ve had over the last ten years, I’ve worked on polishing the manuscripts to make them attractive enough for an agent and publisher (and ultimately for a video format) to pursue. It is with that effort and goal that I approach you with this project and hope you find it useful and enjoyable. Thanks.

Review by: Meredith Maguire on Oct. 06, 2011 :
I enjoyed Roger's other book "the Secret of the Century" and thought I'd try this one. This is a story of a young man who is Search of the Golden Shiksa. When reading this book i'm taken back to my awkward teenage years; although I'm female I can relate to Craig the main character. How he sees this popular girl that he can't really ever have which makes him want her even more. I think this is true for many of us back then and even in our current lives. However unlike most of us Craig actually gets Debbie (his Shiksa) even if it's for only for a short while before his heart is broken by her. It then goes on to how he tries to get her out of his mind. It takes us on many comic adventures over several years of the boys life and with the hopes that him and Debbie will meet again later in life. I would recommend this It is a well written book that is very entertaining full of lively charaters. I hope he comes out with another book soon.
