Writer at 98 writes his first novel and starts a memoir: “My First One Hundred years”. You gotta love a guy with a sense of humor like that!
Osmond Molarsky has been writing all his life. He’s written ad copy, radio documentaries, U.S. Navy training films and a series of children’s books. But it wasn’t until last year that the 98-year-old Mill Valley resident wrote his first novel, a contemporary political satire called “The Noah Hour.”
So far, though, no takers. “I’ve sent query letters to publishers,” Molarsky says. “I’ve tried agents, and they’re all looking for ‘chick lit.’ A lot of them say that right on their resume.”
