This book of new stories by the Israeli-American short story writer Jerome Mandel tells tales of the head, the heart, and writing – some gritty, some witty, some smooth. They address loss and love, puzzlement and growing old, making choices -- with wit, intelligence, sympathy. In these stories cars break down, people make surprising announcements or do unexpected things, they die or don’t or can’t or sell metaphors. Some people fall in love, misplace love, lose love.

About the Author:

Jerome Mandel, sometime Chair of the English Department at Tel Aviv University and now Professor Emeritus, is the first-place winner of the P.E.N.-UNESCO International Short Story Competition (1997) for ‘Third Time, Ice Cream.’ His first book of stories, Nothing Gold Can Stay: 18 Stories of Israeli Experience appeared in 1999. Most of the stories in his new book, Covet The Oven, are American. He was born in Cleveland, Ohio, educated at Oberlin and Ohio State, moved to Israel in 1978, and lives in the Carmel Market in Tel Aviv. A complete vita, samples of his academic work, and sample short stories available to read for free appear on his website.
