On the roof of Gusta Katz's tower on Manhattan's Upper West Side the tenants are gathered for a holiday meal. It is autumn 1993. Each has a story to tell.

Calev 'Charlie' Levine cannot go home. What caused Martin Sommers' engagement to implode? Will Toby Kassman give in to forbidden passion? What will Sam Geffen learn from his guest from hell? What long-held secret will Leslie Aronowitz's mother reveal after her death?

Tales of conflict and love; of family discovery, dating, marriage, dysfunctional relationships, escape from and return to religion. From a shocking holocaust revelation to a tale of revenge, someone will still be affected by the residue of long past mistakes. Someone from mistakes made just yesterday.

In West Side Stories Michael Lieberman delves deep into the heart of modern Orthodox Jewish New York in a work that overflows with hilarity, heartache, and beauty.
