About this title


Chronicling the lives of Jews in America, nine stories combining history, fable, theology, and myth include searching for an impossible gem in Manhattan's diamond district, a university library that catalogues human evil, and a rabbi matching wits with the devil.

From the Back Cover:

Combining history, fable, theology, and myth, these nine stories, by turns magical and mundane, comic and tragic, are remarkable for the breadth of their concerns and the depth of their vision. Melvin Bukiet chronicles the lives of Jews in America, past and present, in stories that are at once contemporary and timeless.
