Readers of this collection of allegorical short stories will discover a compelling and unforgettable trove of literary delights. These tales describe the imperfections in human nature with extraordinary candor and vividness. Readers will meet a self-entitled nonagenarian whose dangerous antics frazzle his son; a dying mother who suddenly awakens from her dementia to join her son in a song of communion; two religious zealots who attempt to convert an implacable atheist; a pathologically self-centered woman who single-handedly destroys a special dinner at a restaurant; and an elderly college student who is traumatized by a short visit to a photography darkroom. These characters and many more from the kind-hearted to the rascally to the insufferable populate this enchanting medley of stories. Not incidentally, many of the stories are sprinkled with Yiddishkeit humor that enlivens them with rich cultural and ethnic tones.
