The 1980s, particularly the early part, were the most pivotal period of my life. So much of what happened back then would reverberate through the subsequent decades.

So it's no surprise that I, a journalist/author when I'm not posting on 1980s boards, have written a coming of age story set in downtown NYC in the early 1980s. The story is based on my experiences as an NYU student. Even though many details have been fictionalized, it's pretty accurate. For 1980s lovers, there are MANY references to the music, events and pop icons of that period. There's even one chapter where two characters get closer as a result of the murder of John Lennon. Also, the main character works at a rock club in NYC.

Check it out if you can. It's available in Kindle: http://www.amazon.com/Love-Loss-Long...s=Iris+Dorbian
