Miami: A Survivor’s Tale, A book by 28th Jud. Bar Member Frank Abrams, has been released!

MIAMI: A SURVIVOR’S TALE is a memoir written by Buncombe County Bar Member Frank Abrams.

Getting great reviews: “Flailing the air with the sharp wit of coconut machete words, Frank Abrams cuts the head square off Miami, nestles it under his arm and boldly walks through the Headless City, talking to himself. Everywhere people stare, eyes dumbed down, as plaintiff cries, barking dogs, gunshots and real estate developers drown together in a sunburned stew of history gone awry.” Pete Gallagher, award winning writer.
