Format: Paperback
This slim volume of short stories by LA-based award-winning writer, Racelle Rosett reminds me of my favorite Yiddish writer of the last century, Sholem Aleichem. Best known for Teveye's Daughters (later re scripted as Fiddler on the Roof), Sholom Aleichem captured the zeitgeist of the late 19th century shtetl in Eastern Europe through short stories, plays, and and poems. A hundred years later, Racelle Rosett manages to give her readers a real taste of Jewish life in Southern California that beautifully balances the traditions of 'yiddishkeit' from another era with all the ironies and contradictions of modern life in Los Angeles. Her protagonists are often characters who live at once with a foot and sensibility that are as Jewish as any character in a Sholem Aleichem story and at the same time attempting to navigate and make sense of modern life in LA. My favorite characters include the young Levi from her 2009 award winning story, and Winter Bloom from the lead story in the collection titled Moving Waters. My favorite story in the collection is the timeless love story that is Shomer. A highly recommended collection of fiction for any one who loves great writing, who wants to laugh and cry, and for those who find themselves living somewhere in between the worlds of Tevye and Sarah Silverman.

This book touched my soul and engaged me in a way that only few books have . I love books like this that remind me of beautiful forgotten things from my religion and my childhood. I could not put it down.
Ms. Rosett has a huge future in the literary world . A true story teller. Bravo

Beautifully written, each story is a gem unto it's self. A glance into the richness of life within the American Jewish experience. Thought provoking.
