Abstract:

Hailed as a tale of truly heroic proportions about a larger-than-life figure who struggled with his destiny, and with his heart and his soul, BOMBED IN HIS BED, takes place all around the world. Full of astonishing stories, Myer Rush's life is unforgettable As a five-year-old paperboy defending his street corner against anti-Semitic kids much older during the Depression. Tales of being a Cat Burglar and having no fear. Running guns into Palestine when asked by a Rabbi. The wonder sex herb that he discovered and marketed with enormous success. The sign business of putting advertisements atop taxis that further enhanced his fortune. The buying of companies, promoting them and making millions doing so. Going to Karachi to demand the rubies owed him. When men broke into his home and beat him with baseball bats and Myer subsequently picking out the intruder in a police line up by busting his jaw and walking away. He was front page news across Canada and much of the world for dying twice on the way to the hospital but surviving a bomb that detonated under his bed at the posh Sutton Place Hotel the night before testifying about a 100 million dollar fraud that was considered by many as the "crime of the century." No one was ever charged in that case. And it is thought that the padding in the mattress, which plugged up his wounds thereby stopping the bleeding, saved his life. Describing an era, a larger than life personality that shocked a City that had been sleepy and provincial but now had to come terms with a Gangland style bombing of a man that somehow survived it, willing to testify against all comers, this book is a powerful, human tale, almost Old Testament in the trials given to a man. Helping it come alive are the newspaper articles recalling the amazing stories, a personal note from the Toronto reporter who filed an exclusive story on Myer while in Panama, and Myer's daughter's gratitude to get to know her dad more intimately through these stories.
