This is Bruce Rosen’s critically acclaimed first book, and is a memoir dedicated to his mom, Alma Lorraine Rosen, a psychic who supported her family by reading tea leaves for the famous, such as Marlon Brando. Rosen covers his regret at the severing of a once-thriving 25-year marriage, the joy of parenthood, and finding forgiveness for an abusive father. He reflects on life in various places in the world, such as San Francisco, New York, Costa Rica, Paris, Florence, London during the terrorist bombings, and Bangkok during the coup. Rosen discusses the erroneously reported death of his uncle, a Jewish gangster stock promoter who survived a bomb explosion the night before he was to testify in a headline-grabbing trial, coming to terms with an unraveling economy, and the thrill of international recognition as a writer on the BBC and at the Baseball Hall of Fame.

"I'm totally amazed at the beauty and quality of your writing... It's like Ulysses, only easier to read... You make every sentence count and you have an excellent recall of details. The flow of thought, the depth, the humor, the vignettes are entertaining, and in many ways, the book is a page-turner."---Merla Zellerbach--Author/Former Editor of Nob Hill Gazette"There are stories in our life that provoke our feelings in a heartfelt and sentimental way, so we say, "I could write a book about my life!" Well, Rosen has done just that. And done a pretty good job of it... Readers will be able to relate to many of the current events and the times he describes... It's a lazy Sunday afternoon read. Snuggle up and lose yourself among the pages."---MyShelf.com"What I enjoyed so much about this book is the way that it called out to my own journey. Rosen tells his story in a way that reminds us that we are all walking the same path. Although many of the details are different, the essential threads of our humanity are remarkably similar. An eloquent and heartfelt book."---Jeff Brown, Author--Soulshaping: A Journey of Self-Creation"Tolstoy said that "All happy families are alike. Every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way." This memoir is testimony to that. Rosen tells us of his life, his family, his marriage, et cetera, but he does so quite movingly and you might just, like looking in a mirror, see someone you recognize."---Alan Caruba, Founding Member of National Book Critics Circle, Bookviews.com"Written with startling honesty and grace, Bruce Farrell Rosen's memoir If You Ever Need Me, I Won't Be Far Away, transcends the loss of people, place, and love, with joy, humor, heart, inspiration, and a reawakened passion."---Asian Week"This is the heartfelt memoir of award-winning writer Bruce Farrell Rosen. As Rosen faces the unraveling of his marriage, he delves deeply into the nature of his greatest loves for his psychic mother, his wife of 25 years, his two talented sons, musAbout the Author:
