  • The Greatest Generation : The 40’s, American in Decline 70 Years Later

    This is a look at history that covers an exciting period from 1940 to 2000. These seventy years was a mystery novel, in theory. _ ere were so many different plots and interchangeable events, without a clear solution of an outcome or ending. History will not flow like a romantic novel. Each of my chapters will have an independent flow of facts and opinions of its own. Each chapter will be venturing separately into different time zones. History will present itself according to different perceptions of different times by one’s point of view. It’s like a pair of dice: 4 + 2 = 6, 5 + I = 6, and 3 + 3 = 6. They all have the same results; but it depends on your perception. What was more of a milestone, the election of the first black American president or the election of the first Catholic president in 1960? You cannot rewrite history; you can only inject parts of the past into present times. One thing you cannot guarantee is that the past will repeat itself or affect the future. I have instituted separate sections called creative sidelines. They will be independent of any chapters. They are brief passages of events that had a profound effect on history. A collection of facts, they will challenge individual readers to seek additional knowledge about these events. Revisiting the past, what knowledge or perception could a person have that was born in 1960, 1970, or 1980 of the Manhattan Project of the 1940s, the U-2 Incident of the 1950s, the Cuban Missile Crisis during the 1960s, Soul Train, Watergate, or in the 1990s, the Hanging Chad? Creative sidelines respond to time and events. Look at a spot on a mirror and only a few inches away it is not visible. Step back a few feet, that spot becomes clear and visible. _ is book gives you the opportunity to step back, examine, or challenge the facts or opinions of the past or present time.

  • The Little Eater of Bleeding Hearts: A Memoir

    “The Little Eater of Bleeding Hearts is a testimony of a milieu and of an era that history has no right to erase.” ANTONINE MAILLET

    Very rarely do Americans dare to write in French nowadays. The author, Norman Beaupré, has a special talent for doing so. He’s the one who translated his original autobiographical novel, Le Petit Mangeur de Fleurs(The Little Eater of Flowers), with a sensitivity to words as well as an exceptional authenticity in expressing his thoughts on his own growing up. One could easily say that it is the merger of the simplicity of a child with the wisdom of one who has struggled to maintain his own cultural identity as a Francophone writer. The author revealed, during one interview in France, that he found the work authentic for many reasons but especially because he had to recollect memories from long past that were, and still are, painful to him.

    The Francophone population of New England laments the erosion of its language and culture. Each one struggles in his own way attempting to remain faithful to the collective identity they grew up with. Norman Beaupré, while playing with words and sometimes with bleeding hearts, dares to become, by doing so, one of the standard bearers of the ethnic group to which he belongs. This work not only touches upon memories of growing up but the very lives with which the author came into contact from as far as he can remember up to his late teens. A work of cultural richness and pride(fierté), as a reader from Dijon, France, once expressed to the author at a Salon du Livre that he attended in 2007.

    About the author:

    Norman Beaupré was born in Maine and is presently Professor Emeritus at the University of New England. He is the author of twenty-three publications. He writes both in French and in English. His latest novel is Lucienne, la simple d’esprit, a novel of three generations of a Québécois family. He has traveled extensively and has done much research for his works. He was decorated by the French government with the rank of Officier dans l’Ordre des Arts et Lettres for his outstanding contribution to French culture.
