July 11, 2012 - PRLog -- Author Allen Roth’s brutally honest memoir is a touching reflection showing deep insight into the human psyche. Integrating the Chapters of a Life is an emotional journey that will reward readers with its sincerity and searing depiction of one man trying to fit together his disparate and often seemingly contradictory parts.

Through the sharing of deeply personal reflections, questions, revelations and feelings, as well as the use of poetry, humor, anecdote and second person narrative, Roth deftly explores with the reader the universal search for self-awareness, wholeness and belonging.

His look back includes all the people who have significantly touched his life over a span of more than 60 years, though all remain anonymous, including himself. The book is at once funny, witty, tender, thought provoking and moving. The author has stripped his soul bare, as he describes his struggles (with teaching and parenting, dating and aging), panic attacks, achievements and life lessons learned in a dialogue that we can all find relatable.

In the words of reviewer and Assistant Professor of English (Writing and Rhetoric) Chris C., the author’s use of pathos had me laughing one minute and feeling sympathetic the next. His quick-witted phrases were skillfully placed to pop up when you least expected them. For instance, when discussing a friend who was a psychotherapist, he adds, "although at the time you were unaware that those were two separate words.”

INTEGRATING THE CHAPTERS OF A LIFE (ISBN: 978-1-46998-735-4) is now available for $9.95 and can be ordered through: www.amazon.com or www.barnesandnoble.com and other channels.

About the Author: Allen Roth is a college professor and lifelong educator who lives with his teenage son on Long Island, N.Y. Though he has written all his life, including poetry and essays in education and politics, this book, which he says has “simmered within him for more than 30 years,” is his first novel.
