  • The art of Jewish storytelling thrives in this captivating collection of tales by Allen Hoffman, filled with memorable characters
Full Description

This captivating collection of stories by Allen Hoffman, award winning author of the critically acclaimed Small Worlds series are deeply felt explorations into the Jewish mind and world—stories in the tradition of Isaac Bashevis Singer. At the same time, illuminated by compassion and humour, they transcend cultural boundaries and provide fascinating studies in the universal human experience. Kagan the compulsive gambler, Bluma the old beggar woman, Hymie the well-to-do arsonist, and Maxie the juggling uncle are but a few of the comic and sympathetic characters of Hoffman’s title novella and four short stories that celebrate the human experience. Hoffman loves and integrates two worlds, the modern secular and the timeless traditional. Kagan’s Superfecta is a dazzling, inspirational performance.
