BRUCE LANGFELD (“Give and Take”) grew up in Whitemarsh and spent most of his life in Philadelphia. He was a diehard fan of the city as well as a keen observer of all its problems. Bruce’s creative output was wide ranging—he was a guitar player, a songwriter, a fiction writer, a poet, and a contributor of scathing responses to poorly informed political bloggers. He taught at Temple’s intellectual heritage program, and was an enormous Flyers fan. He never read Ayn Rand.
Bruce died in 2007 of apparent heart failure, just before we could tell him his story had been accepted to Philly Fiction 2. The book is dedicated to his memory, held fondly by all who had the pleasure of his company.
