With a President now above the law, Aftermath Boy retraces history’s steps presently threatening Democracy and Individual Freedom

With a President now above the law, Aftermath Boy retraces history’s steps presently threatening Democracy and Individual Freedom
A new novel of the intergenerational trauma of Holocaust survivors and how their experiences mirror current threats to democracy and freedom.

With his first novel, Aftermath Boy, septuagenarian Robert E. Honig, son of Holocaust survivors, depicts how a mother’s Holocaust history shapes her son’s youthful follies that come back to haunt him as history’s lessons about the rise of fascism overwhelm the aging baby boomer. Democracy and the 2024 election hang in the balance.

“Aftermath Boy” by Robert E. Honig is a profound exploration of history, trauma, and the relentless quest for justice and understanding. The novel masterfully intertwines the harrowing experiences of Holocaust survivors with the contemporary struggles of their descendants, creating a narrative that is both deeply personal and universally significant.” – Robert Atunda for onlinebookclub.

 “The author’s background as a former congressional task force writer and his representation of a Star Wars program whistleblower during the Reagan era lend credibility to the political themes woven throughout the book. Honig’s experiences in Washington DC and his connections with speaking groups in the area have undoubtedly influenced the novel’s exploration of power, corruption, and the fight for justice.” – Literary Titan.

“Robert E. Honig’s “Aftermath Boy” is a powerful and thought-provoking novel that delves into the lasting impact of historical trauma and the ongoing struggle for justice and understanding. Its blend of historical accuracy, emotional depth, and social commentary makes it a unique and significant contribution to both literature and history.”  A family saga with deep psychological insight. History, politics and law come together to reveal how the waves of catyclismic events wash over generations. The U.S. government’s complicity in the murder of the Jews in 1944 reflects an indifference to truth and justice coincident with the implosion of the Republican Party today.  Antisemitism a century ago merges with the divide and conquer rhetoric creating an intolerable American schism.  Honig creates characters that reflect the cause and effect of autocracy that can menace anyone.

We are thrilled to announce that “Aftermath Boy” has been honored with the esteemed Literary Titan Silver Book Award. This accolade highlights the book’s exceptional narrative and profound impact on readers. Literary Titan praised the novel, stating, “Honig’s storytelling provides a powerful and thought-provoking reflection on how history continues to shape contemporary identity and society.” This recognition underscores the novel’s compelling exploration of historical influences on modern life.
