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.
