Elan Barnehama
Author of the novel FINDING BLUEFIELD, @elanbarnehama

Elan is the author of the novel, Finding Bluefield. Set against the 1960's, it's the story of Nicky and Barbara’s search for love and family during a time when relationships like theirs were mostly hidden and often dangerous.

Elan is finishing a new novel set in NYC during the final years of the Vietnam War and narrated by the son of holocaust survivors who is obsessed with finding an escape route for when the US rounds up its Jews, while navigating high school and the impending Vietnam War draft lottery.

Elan is a New Yorker by default, a tortured Mets fan by geography. He's taught college, led community-based writing workshops, taught at-risk youth, wrote for a couple of universities, coached varsity baseball, was radio news guy, and a mediocre short-order cook. More info at: elanbarnehama.com
