Gangster Myer Rush led a colorful and dangerous existence. So dangerous he was the target of an assassination attempt and blown up while sleeping. From his first job as a paperboy to wheeling and dealing making millions Myer lived many lives during his time. His nephew, Bruce Farrell Rosen has told the story Myer shared exclusively with him. It is truly one of the most powerful stories being produced during this time or any time. Bombed in His Bed, Confessions of Jewish Gangster Myer Rush is a sweeping epic, taking in the depression, the immigrant experience, the origins of the mobster world-many of the colorful characters of the period herein-describing a man that wanted to use whatever talents he had to never be poor. The story has elements of Dickens, Damon Runyon, Dashiell Hammett, and is reminiscent a little of Bonnie And Clyde, The Sting, The Godfather, Goodfellas, and even has elements of Tom Sawyer or Huckleberry Finn, as Myer meets the lad from Hattiesberg Mississippi, Rusty Stokes. It covers the War time-period; the 50's when the world was just starting to accelerate after the War Years; the Go-Go 60's, when Myer came of age, created enormous wealth, and suffered the depths of total destruction. The story moves on to the 70's where he sat in prison wrongfully accused. Then he meets his earnest journalist nephew and they both discover a great deal about themselves beginning with Bruce a bit in awe of his uncle and matures into a probing, searching, exploration into the man that is his uncle. A man he did not fear, but whose name created so much fear in others. The story becomes incredibly wise as it evolves, such that one reviewer of the book is correct when she says that there are themes of crime and redemption in the life of this complicated gangster.
