Riassunto: Temporary Permanence is a collection of short stories based on the author’s experience, even though all personal and place names are changed. Every story is entertaining and includes a surprise ending. This book is a potpourri of anecdotes worth remembering, useful information, emotionally stimulating episodes, ridiculously unrealistic comedy, sadly true incidents, mysteriously strange experiences, and tales of greedy people. However, most stories describe true human nature, often negative, egoistic, selfish and greedy, seen in myself, colleagues, or other respectable persons. Occasionally I have met a really good person, but societies are composed of real human beings, not robots, or saints. This makes the world we live in interesting. In general, most people have many faults with some good qualities. I hope I have captured the mixed character of individuals in my stories. I divided my forty-plus stories into six parts, based on progressive stages of my life. However, each story is independent and can be read in any sequence without losing flavor. I will guarantee that you will enjoy every one of my stories.

About the Author: Yashi Nozawa was born in Tokyo, Japan. He came to the United States for graduate studies and received M.S and Sc.D. degrees in Aeronautics and Astronautics from MIT. After his retirement from engineering, he began writing as a second career. He writes in two different fields: the genres of biographical fictions and memoirs, and science and religions, specializing in the rational explanation of religious phenomena. He has written several dozen articles in both fields for periodicals. He has also published, "Temporary Permanence", subtitled "My Life in America: Humorous Short Stories Based on Experiences of a Japanese Engineer," a collection of autobiographical short stories. Readers of the book have praised his O. Henry-style writing and made it a local best seller. "Don't Be Afraid of Air Raids" is the second book in his memoir series, but the first book dealing with the war experience. It describes his experience on Doolittle's Tokyo Raid on April 18, 1942 during the earliest part of the Pacific War and its after effects. In the science-religion series, he published, "The Spring Connections: Easter, Passover, and Others," (as Dr. Yasushi Nozawa). The book is about the deep-rooted tradition of spring celebrations and explains the underlying connection between different religious celebrations in spring time, namely vernal equinox, Passover, and Easter. He also disclosed his new interpretation of the meaning of the Israelites' Exodus from Egypt in the book. "Betrayal, Resurrection, and Conversion: Three Christian Miracles Explained," is his second book in the science and religion field. He discloses three bold new hypotheses: The above-mentioned what we called three major miracles in Christianity simple misunderstanding of series of man-made and natural events. He explained how the events happened without evoking the supernatural power of God and without contradicting with descriptions in the Bible. "The First Christmas: A History of Celebration " is his third book in the science-religion series. It covers the origin and evolution of Christmas celebrations and associated events. He detailed about early American exploration, especially often neglected subject of Christmas celebration among Viking and other early settlers.
