In Elyce Wakerman’s novel, A Tale of Two Citizens, a lie is the only thing that can get twenty-year-old Harry Himelbaum past the cold scrutiny of Ellis Island’s immigration official, Will Brown. A lie that locks them in a deadly battle. Based on the true story of Wakerman’s father, this novel is a heart-wrenching clash of love and loyalties; a picture of an America recovering from near collapse and still trying to remain the bastion of hope and prosperity to millions of immigrants.

Elyce Wakerman is the author of Father Loss: Daughters Discuss the Man That Got Away, which captures the immediate and long-term effects of a father’s absence. She lives in Sherman Oaks, California.
