Finding My Place by Judah Leblang

Finding My Place

by Judah Leblang

From wearing a ‘WWJD’ cap around Jacksonville, Florida (assuming it was the moniker of a local radio station) to an unfortunate car accident on the first day of kindergarten, to trying to fill out a muscle T-shirt at age 51 in the gay mecca of Provincetown, Massachusetts, Judah Leblang’s journey of discovery blends comedy and drama. In this episodic memoir, Leblang sketches the world he comes from, a world of poppyseed kuchen, Indians baseball, and the great industrial city of Cleveland, Ohio, which seemed to be imploding in the 1960’s and ‘70’s-and the world he inhabits today, as a hard of hearing man with a funny name, navigating middle age.

Judah Leblang is a Boston-based writer and storyteller, who grew up in Cleveland, Ohio. His essays and commentaries have been broadcast on National Public Radio and ABC-network stations around the US, and published in various newspapers and magazines in Boston and Cleveland. His column, “Life in the Slow Lane,” appears regularly in Bay Windows, a Boston-area weekly newspaper. He is a frequent contributor to “The Health Show” on WAMC-radio, NPR for Albany, NY. Judah’s personal site can be found at JudahLeblang.com. To contact Judah, email judah@judahleblang.com

“Finding My Place: One Man’s Journey from Cleveland to Boston and Beyond” is now available from Lake Effect Press. See  lakeeffectpress.com for more information.
