Front cover corners creased. 1988 Soft Cover. 52 pp. Once in a great while a person comes along whose view of reality works harmoniously with the universe. Such a person is Nell the Nebbish. As Nell grew up, she did not fit into the American ideal of what a child is supposed to be like or look like. She was gangly, awkward, and did not excel in school or sports. Yet her parents had waited a decade for her arrival and viewed her as a treasure; they bestowed upon her unconditional love and acceptance. Thus Nell grew into womanhood thinking, feeling, and being in the world as if she were a 'winner'. Nell is out there ready to get up time and time again. We applaud her, learn from her, and come to love her. We want her to make it, and there is no cause for concern. Nell knows there is no such thing as a final count because she can always count on herself. Nell the Nebbish is about the sunshine of the soul. It celebrates the absence of oughts, shoulds and musts. It champions innocence, spontaneity, self-worth and love which dissolve all barriers.
