A Nobody Is Somebody : My Memoirs

Peter M. Olsen

Inspired by the story of Anne Frank and her dedication to her diary, Peter Olsen began chronicling his life as an average citizen in 1959 while he was still a young college student. He filled countless notebooks with his observations and reflections on humanity - from his disdain for the superficial glamour of Hollywood stars to his passionate encounters with God and spirituality.Now, 45 years later, Olsen has chosen to share his memories with the world, describing how a man who may be considered to be a nobody by those in power is somebody in the eyes of God. Olsens fiery polemic decries those who fail to recognize that their world is full of nobodies - and that those unrecognizable men and women are often the heroes of society - the firefighters who saved countless New Yorkers on 9/11, the soldiers struggling to spread democracy in Iraq, the teachers training young Americans to lead the nation once their elders have passed on.Boldly honest and passionately written, Somebody is a brave, existential defense of the common man and his struggle to survive in a world dominated by avarice, deceit and frivolity.
