4.0 out of 5 stars A Curious Perspective, October 1, 2012
This review is from: The Curious Vision Of Sammy Levitt and Other Stories (Hardcover)
As a middle-aged Southern Anglo Saxon Protestant female with rural Appalachian roots, it took a few chapters for me to identify with a 13-year-old Jewish boy preparing for his bar mitzvah in New York City. But once the connection was made, I had to find out what happened to Sammy Levitt. Author Cliff Graubart had me alternately in tears and laughing out loud on an airplane, especially that last chapter. I could have read more about Sammy Levitt, but then I might have missed the poignancy of "Who Cries for Aaron," or a theater owner's memorable guidance to a budding writer in "Innocence off Broadway." "The Curious Vision of Sammy Levitt and Other Stories" is an impressive first novel from a talented author with universal messages to convey beyond the American Jewish experience. The conquering of fears and fulfilling of lifelong promises are common themes that should be a matter of curiosity from the perspective of many an inquiring mind.
