Lazar Malkin Enters Heaven: Stories
The nine stories in this collection all share either the theme or the setting of the mythical Jewish neighborhood of North Maine Street in the author's native Memphis, Tenn. He writes about mischievous "cheder" boys who try to lead a "lamedvovnik" into temptation, of the Lord bullying Morton Gruber into a book collaboration, and of his Aunt Esther's very strange, literally unworldly, suitor.

Steve Stern finely crafted these haunting, macabre and fascinating stories set in a fallen and forgotten world where even the angels lose their sheen. Still, for all the faults of his gods and angels, there is a definite beauty and uncertain redemption in his writing. Lovely. Read full review
