The First Eighteen


Recent release “The First Eighteen” from Page Publishing author Jerrold Jordan is an autobiographical reflection narrated with an appealingly self-deprecating humour and a disarming candour when recalling sensitive topics.

Jerrold Jordan is a retired attorney, trial court judge, and divorce mediator residing with his wife of sixty-two years in rural Iowa, where he enjoys lap swimming, golf, fishing, sailing, cycling, woodcarving, and yard work. He has published his latest book “The First Eighteen”: a nostalgic account of his formative years in a bygone era, from first through twelfth grade.

This is a memoir about growing up in small Iowa towns from the late Depression years through World War II. The story as told by an eighty-five-year-old retired attorney and judge, was written after his release from alcoholism and describes the innocence of his first eighteen years of life while recalling the places, persons, and events that shaped his future. It is a coming of age story with lessons about life and people.

Published by Page Publishing, Jerrold Jordan’s engrossing book is an entertaining, yet sometimes poignant, glimpse into a simpler past in a small American mid-western town.

Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “The First Eighteen” at bookstores or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
