A Novel of Klass
Ayzik Klass, self-styled Yiddish Painter and survivor of the Holocaust, has finally gotten his first New York City gallery show. But Yiddish is a language. How can someone paint in Yiddish? Semantics are the least of Klasss problems, for his wife, named Griselda by some grand joke of the universe, is intent on making the opening a grand success. And Griselda is anything but patient. Will she ruin Klasss opening? Will she somehow manage to kill Klass? Is A Novel of Klass a mystery? Probably not. Is it a comedy? Probably so. Is it a tragedy? Probably so. Does it have two endings? Most definitely so.
