Stories no one else tells, or would dare to.

This is wonderful, strange, marvelous work. –Jay O’Callahan

Bernie’s wildly eclectic repertory includes:
1. “Without a Song.” Tragi-comic stories of life in a dysfunctional Russian-Jewish immigrant family that could easily be Everyfamily. “I thought you were describing my Sicilian family.”--Joan Tucci Daidone

2. “The Mouse from the Comics.” Enchanting stories from beloved Italian children’s author Gianni Rodari, in Bernie’s translations. ”These whimsical tales can be enjoyed by the entire family." — School Library Journal

3. “Tales from the North Star.” “This is no pop mysticism. I paid for these stories with my lives.” Absolutely true stories of reincarnation and intergalactic travel. Includes visits to Atlantis 100,000 B.C., the place where the soul goes between lives, and the outer reaches of the cosmos. Encounters with Moses, Jesus, the Virgin Mary, Saint Francis of Assisi, William Blake et al.

“Bernie inhabits his stories with characters and events seemingly woven from dreams. As the tales unfold the listener realizes that the life described has been ’lived’ and we are hearing it ’from the horse’s mouth’. Next the believer settles in for a trip with the teller never to be forgotten.”--Carol Titus, NJ Storytelling Network

"I felt more open to the miracle of life after listening to your stories. I very much like Alexandros, the reincarnation of Alexander the Great. And I was deeply struck by the whole Christ scene. The laugh was so extraordinary. And the eyes with no hate. It really has a freedom that opens something new inside me and I’m sure every listener." — Jay O’Callahan

“You take my pedestrian self to startling, dazzling places. Your memories are searing and hilarious and like radiation have a remarkable half life, lingering and touching well past their telling.”-- Lisa Otis, storyteller and art teacher
