In the beginning they were three. Joanna and Ted Kramer, and four-year-old Billy -- his big brown eyes bright with curiosity and wonder. A perfect family. Then on day the mother abandons them. Divorce. And now they are two. Father and son. Caring and cared for, learning what loving and belonging are all about, until there is a bond between them that nothing can break. Nothing and nobody -- except maybe a mother who, almost two years later, changes her mind and wants her little boy back. This book was made into a movie by the same title

"Veronica Delaney, single, in her twenties, a freelance writer, while working on an article becomes involved with a dazzling, charismatic man, and she is turned inside out. With his unique storytelling gifts, Avery Corman creates a wonderful, identifiable female character whose circumstance parallels that of so many women ... and then it begins to turn. Is this boyfriend a typically uncommitted male or is he hiding something? Is he wonderfully supportive or is he excessively manipulative? Is he dramatically high-maintenance or is he inherently evil? From this insightful novelist, here is a spellbinding tale that is true-to-life, deeply involving, and ultimately, terrifying"--Publisher's description
Oh, God! A novel by Avery Corman( Book )
24 editions published between 1971 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 349 libraries worldwide
For a God whom philosophers have proclaimed dead, there's only one thing to do: drum up a little publicity God grants you an interview. Go to 600 Madison Ave., room 3700, Monday, at 11 a.m. When a struggling writer receives this typed note in the mail one morning, curiosity wins out and he finds himself keeping this mysterious appointment. Soon he's in an ordinary conference room with an intercom on the floor, furiously scribbling shorthand notes as he interviews God, a deity who badly wants to improve His public profile. Sometimes God speaks through the intercom, other times He communicates as a hot dog vendor on the corner. But however God appears, He's giving this anointed journalist the story of a lifetime-and all he has to do is sell the story to the public. Adapted as the classic film starring George Burns, Oh, God! is a warm and witty satire about life, the Lord, the media, and the need for some good publicity. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Avery Corman, including rare images from the author's personal collection
