Our hero has lost many things: his wife, his home, his dignity, and his job. Oh -- and his college-bound daughter is pregnant and he might die. Read all this and weep and laugh. This is a tender, messy, and funny book about one American man. (You might just know him.) Highly recommended.
Oy, have you heard about the Middlesteins? Such tsuris in that family! The wife is eating herself to death, the husband has left her, and their children just have to cope. This megillah flows like a chocolate fountain at the twin grandkids’ b’nai mitzvah, and it’s so full of food, anger, guilt, and compassion, you’ll plotz! Lots of laughs, too. If you crave a good book to nosh on, look no further.
The newest novel from the “Master of Farce”, Skios is a delicious tale of mistaken identity, stolen suitcases, and underhanded schemes set against the beautiful backdrop of a Greek island. A wickedly entertaining ride!
