1956 Book One: Sweet Sweet Little Ramona… FUNDED on DAY ONE!

August 29, 2020

Hi! I put up my new book at Kickstarter, and it funded on Day One! Go ahead and order your copy HERE AT THE KICKSTARTER! Please join me and lend your support to this project.

This is the story of Jack, Susie, and of course Ramona. We travel to Manhattan of 1956 to meet our players, who haunt the wholesale Garment District by day, and the legendary jazz clubs of 52nd Street by night.

Jack and Susie, junior buyers for the McCurdy’s chain of department stores, are ambitious kids trying to make their mark as they vie for the position of Chief Buyer. And hey, maybe they happen to fall in love on the side? We’ll see!

Ramona hails from Texas, a young trans woman looking to be herself in the atmosphere of 1950s New York City. It ain’t easy! She descends into working the streets to support herself while she dreams of becoming a fashion model.

Against this backdrop, our cast of players congregate in the jazz clubs at night and begin to scheme. Are they competing with each other? Or do they work together to realize their dreams?

1956 Book One was inspired by the early career of my dad, Don Lafler, who passed away last year in 2019. This book is dedicated to him.

Thanks for your support!
