Ashland author publishes a novel that reads like a memoir
Peace figures prominently in the life of Ashland resident Ron Hertz, and in the novel he recently published, Even Heroes Sometimes Sink.
Hertz protested for peace as a high school student and kept the faith through a teaching career, joining the Rogue Valley Peace Choir when he retired to Ashland. His novel takes in peace and conflict, domestic tranquility and the Holocaust--with a visit to Auschwitz--and more in a story that rhymes with the author's life, but is not a complete facsimile.
Ron Hertz talks about his world and the world of his book.
