The book of BobISBN 9789402138467
Bob Maram (1931, Chicago) made his career as a banker who transformed nightly into an avant-garde actor in downtown Chicago. When retired he joined his wife Ineke in Ghana where she worked as a tropical doctor.
Bob is an critical reader of history and American literature and delights in music and acting. In Ghana his writing started with his play (2007), followed by essays, book reviews and loose notes left here and there in drawers, his diary.
In his work, like in a delicate dance, shadow completes light, male deepens female and seductive whim dances with intellect. His transgender identity in an age where this was ill-understood made him naturally a master of evasion and storytelling. The writings of Bob are charming, knowledgeable and always stem from a deep place in the heart.
When you have read the first part without putting the book away you will certainly be engrossed in the diary notes and will simply love the man for it. My man. I compiled this book for Bob’s 84th birthday which took place on the 17th July of 2015. Happy Birthday, Bob. Ineke.
