Longing For Winter: A Black Man's Saga is a biographical novel, spoken through the words of Noel Sheridan, the main character. I chose to write this book as a catharsis of sorts. While most of the characters in this work are fictitious, as are some of the scenarios, the main storyline is factual. With respect to the characters that are based on actual individuals, such as myself, the names have been changed. Being that I have endeavored to address such a controversial subject: race relations, and exposed aspects of American society that are taboo, some may be taken aback by what they read. Further, the reader may wonder if some of the things mentioned in this story actually take place in our society; I can say yes, emphatically! I am most confident in making such a bold statement, because it is rooted in truth. In fact, as I submit this work, I am totally dispossessed. Having experienced such a tumultuous ten years, I wanted to set the record straight about how horribly African American men are far too frequently treated in our society.

"George Topas' moving and probing narrative is an important contribution to Holocaust literature" - Elie Wiesel "The Iron Furnace is a profoundly moving account of faith, love, courage, and endurance. With his direct and deceptively simple style, George Topas convinces us that we're sharing the heartfelt recollections of an old and dear friend. This story - and this decent, unassuming hero - will leave an incredible impression on all readers" - Michael Medved "The Iron Furnace will greatly contribute to the deepening memory of the Holocaust. It reveals the indomitable spirit of those that lived in the world which was destroyed." - Rabbi Marvin Hier, Dean, Simon Wiesenthal Center "A searing tribute to one man's indomitable spirit to outlive his tormentors" - Canadian Jewish News "This chilling memoir effectively reminds us of the inhumanity with which people treated their fellow humans.'' - Library Journal
