Description - Yalla! by Alejandro Modena

Everyone has a story, but some lives are endowed with more than their share of drama and challenges. And sometimes, by dint of extraordinary effort, these challenges become opportunities. Such is the case with the life of Alejandro Modena. With enough twists and turns for a dozen lifetimes, here are a few of author Alejandro Modena's true stories about when...The Germans attacked Palestine and dropped candies. When he was so filthy and uncared for that his name was Zevel, meaning garbage! When his Arab blood brother tried to kill him. How he met the man who was perhaps the world's most famous writer (Hemingway). How he learned that his betrothed, a Jewish girl he had grown up with, was secretly Catholic and had fled to a convent. And how he raised money to rescue his father in spite of the East Indians, the Chinese and the Syrians.Alejandro Modena is, if nothing else, a survivor. His life has been exceptional, and his story is filled with vibrancy.
