Grove Press continues the reissue of Bruce Jay Friedman's critically acclaimed fiction with two classic novels by the comedic genius.

About the Author:

Novelist, playwright, short-story writer, and Oscar-nominated screenwriter Bruce Jay Friedman was born in New York City. Friedman published his first novel "Stern" in 1962 and established himself as a writer and playwright, most famously known for his off-Broadway hit "Steambath" (1973) (TV) and his 1978 novel "The Lonely Guy's Book of Life". In addition to short stories and plays, Friedman also has published another seven novels, and has written numerous screenplays, including the Oscar-nominated "Splash" (1984). He resides in New York City with his second wife, educater Patricia J. O'Donohue.

From AudioFile:

This is the first novel by the author of numerous darkly humorous stories and plays of contemporary life--notably "Steambath," which was made into a cable TV series, and the screenplay for SPLASH. The title character of this opus is a classic anxiety-ridden East Coast Jewish male going through the usual crises as son, husband, and ulcer-ridden father. Some say Phillip Roth does it better; some say Roth just does it differently. Judge for yourself with this cassette, nicely, albeit frantically, read by Adam Grupper. Aside from trying a little too hard, Grupper has the milieu, tone, and characters down cold. An interview with the author precedes and ends the tape.
