Meet The Author
I was born in Brooklyn, NY in 1945 and raised in the New York City area in what could be called a vintage middle class upbringing. I attended Temple University in Philadelphia where I played baseball and graduated with a B.A. in history in 1967. With a noticeable lack of vocation for anything, and not knowing what else to do, I continued at Temple Law School, graduating in 1970.
After a short stint at a small law firm, my courtship with the American Dream ended unsuccessfully. In 1972, a friend from college introduced me to Key West, the perfect antidote for cultural misfits like myself. I've lived there ever since, working a multitude of inconsequential jobs, none of which had to be taken home with me. For the last 30 years I've been driving a taxi, a job which gave me the flexibility to travel extensively. Without a “career” to encumber much of my life, I began writing in my spare time. I found out this is what I want to do.
I’ve been married 2 times but have grown accustomed to living alone over the last 20 years or so. It is also relevant to note that for much of that time I have spent 2 months of the year on the Spanish island of Formentera.

A/K/A Post Consumer Man,
ebook $3.99, paperback $14.95.
Jermone Grapel began writing essays in the early 90's, this collection being a fractional but representative cross section of an output that is still in progress today. Writing as "Post Consumer Man," he restricts his essays to anything that may be relevant since the dawn of time to the end of eternity. They serve as a therapeutical voice to his objections to the paradigm of our culture and the negativity it is leading us into. Grapel notes that all cultures attempt to inculcate their constituents into someone’s narrow minded, self-serving version of reality and this book is his attempt to translate these subterfuges into the truth.
