A Lost Giant, Reimagined

 

With his new historical novel, ALL MAN’S LAND, D. Laszlo Conhaim mounts a vigorous tribute to Paul Robeson—singer, actor, activist, lawyer, athlete, author. A renaissance man who for five decades sang and spoke to the world, today this titan of the 20th century is all but forgotten.

 

Mostly fiction, but combining elements of memoir and biography, in All Man’s Land Conhaim rediscovers his own manuscript of thirty years ago that speaks volumes to today’s America. It’s the story of Benjamin Neill, a former slave and decorated Civil War hero who rides into a frontier town with a sack of books, a gift for song, and a powerful message.

 

Here is a modern take on the singing cowboy—only Benjamin Neill is as able with a spiritual as he is with a Hebrew chant. Those who don’t know him, fear him. Those who know him, fear him even more. By his trials, we will know him. All Man’s Land is a uniquely American story about the fight for racial and social justice.

 

 

D. Laszlo Conhaim was born in the United States and lives in Israel. Besides All Man’s Land, he is also the author of Comanche Captive (Gale/Cengage, 2017), about a former Indian captive’s struggle to reunite with her Comanche-born son. His first professional writing credit was a two-part 1986 interview in Los Angeles and Tokyo with Japanese screen legend Toshiro Mifune (for Minneapolis’ City Pages), followed by an interview with frequent costar Tatsuya Nakadai for USC’s Daily Trojan. In 1995, Conhaim co-founded The Prague Revue, the longest-running literary journal to serve the community of international writers in Prague. For TPR, he wrote a fictional remembrance of Miguel de Unamuno, “Feeling into Don Miguel,” which Gore Vidal “read with delight” and which Alexander Zaitchik (Rolling Stone, The Nation) called “masterful . . . a first-rate piece of writing by any standard” in Think Magazine.
