The Music Makers and other Jewish stories

by

The Music Makers and other Jewish stories is the author’s third book of short stories.

Like his previous anthologies, The Shtetl and other Jewish stories and The Chorister and other Jewish stories, the contexts of these fictional tales embrace an eclectic range of Jewish-themed situations, historical and contemporary, extraordinary and at times controversial, cathartic and occasionally bizarre, sensitive and sometimes emotional, intriguing and periodically droll. And many of the stories reveal, characteristically, an unexpected twist in the tail.

But additionally, and in contrast with his earlier literary miscellanies, the author adopts in The Music Makers and other Jewish stories an innovative, dialogue-based writing technique designed both to impart immediacy and vitality and also to spur on the reader to be even more creatively involved as an imaginative participant in the scenarios that make these stories complete.
