A bevy of colorful characters cross paths with each other in this novel about Montreal's garment district and its Orthodox Jewish community. If there is one thing Gershon Stein, the rent collector, knows it's that life is rented and everyone has a debt to pay: to their landlord, their family, their community, and—most of all—to their soul.

About the Author:

B. Glen Rotchin is the coeditor of Jerusalem: An Anthology of Jewish Canadian Poetry and A Rich Garland: Poems for A. M. Klein. He lives in Montreal, Quebec.

Review:

"The Rent Collector is a stunning debut. I can safely say this, because I'm stunned that this is the first novel Rotchin has published--it seems too self-assured, too well-written, and too wise to be such a thing." --Paul Quarrington, author of Whale Music and Galveston

"This complex, sensitive and erudite story thrusts us into a series of historical, spiritual and religious grey areas.... Rotchin's warm, aphoristic voice... skilfully crafts moments of humour, wisdom and sensuality." --Hour (Montreal)

"B. Glen Rotchin... [uses] an old-fashioned realist approach to tell an insistently small story with utmost care. The result is a genuine pleasure, a first novel of insight and tenderness." --The Gazette
