Professor Emeritus Yakov M. Zilberberg has written a new book, “Raptures and Rupture (Desultry Delights of Love),” a romantic novella that takes place in the former U.S.S.R.  A native of Odessa, Ukraine, the retired mechanical engineering professor has written 14 plays and a volume of poetry, “Three Poetic Tales as Told by Mister Persey the Scribbling Pooch.” His new book is described as, “a story of unconsummated love doomed to failure by unfavorable life conditions in the U.S.S.R., spanning the mid-1940s to 1970s.”
