About this title

Synopsis:

Sandor's first book, a collection of short stories.

From Library Journal:

Told by daughter, granddaughter, or niece, these stories are yearning, youthful, observant, embellished by time and imagination and polished to a fine, dark gleam. "The Gittel" is a Jewish family tale about a grandmother who is a doomed dreamer, "an innocent whose confused imagination cannot keep up with the civilized world"--the world, as it turns out, of Nazi Germany. By contrast, the wily Mexican woman in "Victrola" pursues her dream to escape joyfully through seduction and survival. "Still Life" and the enchanting title piece are romantic family stories about dreamers whose lives are mysterious or free, particularly to the younger generation. Sandor has achieved some success as a story writer, having had works published in The Best American Stories of 1988 and The Pushcart Prize XII. -- Mary Soete, San Diego P.L.
