A Delightful, Fun, and an Easy Read
Ken White grew up listening to colorful stories in his father's New York candy store. Restocking the store's magazine racks with Architectural Digest, House Beautiful, and National Geographic gave him a glimpse into a world of possibilities beyond Brooklyn and awakened in him a passion for design, decorating, and travel.
Following the sun—and his openly gay lifestyle—Ken moved to Los Angeles in 1964 and founded a flourishing interior design firm. After 25 successful years of work and international travel, he closed the business and moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico, to pursue a more spiritual and joyful life.
Ken's collection of true short stories will transport you from his dad's candy store where it all began to the lurid bathhouses of Manhattan, the ancient cities of Morocco, and the gay life and discos of Amsterdam. Follow Ken on his spiritual journey from the ashrams in India to psychic development classes in Hollywood. Learn how his travels and Jewish upbringing in New York City influenced his adventures. The stories of Ken's outrageous and spirited life in A View from the Back of the Candy Store are heartwarming, funny, and, at times, tear-provoking.
