Editorial Reviews

Review

Moshe Dann's stories are examinations of life as it is really lived, with its share of anxieties and tragedies, its moments of illumination and intimacy. These tender, often sad assessments of our mortal toils do what art is supposed to do: make the reader feel and reflect.
 —Yann Martel, author of Life of Pi

Moshe Dann picks with a small chisel at majestic themes. In the most delicate, unassuming and accessible language (George Orwell would very much approve), his characters go about their quotidian tasks (sorry, George!) while underneath large questions roil and bubble to the surface—questions of history, memory, identity, mortality, spirituality, family, despair, desire—even—dare one say it?—love. His characters—vain, unprepossessing, nervous, smart, but underneath filled with doubt, pain, apprehension and a certain obduracy of spirit, even courage—populate a world that Chekhov might recognize, were he to return as a contemporary Jew, hovering between Israel and the United States. Come to think of it, both George and Anton would have cause to utter a resounding, “Mazel tov!”
  —Robin Hirsch, author of Last Dance at the Hotel Kempinski

Moshe Dann writes stories of longing and loneliness, of men and women hungry to be loved but unable to offer love. His characters want to make something of their lives, but their inner failures, especially their sense of being victims, stop them. Yet we see, we feel, the potential love they have to offer. This is a beautiful book full of intense feeling; the stories recog­nize the limitations of Dann's sad protagonists but invite us to see their yearning for life. We're with them though we certainly don't want to be them. They are figures of possibility, people who cry out to live.
  —John J. Clayton, author of Many Seconds into the Future

Format: Paperback
Poignant and provocative. Dann draws us into the daily life of people we care very much about. His stories are beautifully told and powerfully felt.
