5.0 out of 5 stars Contents: 14 Mar. 2004
By Judy Smith - Published on
Format: Hardcover
These stories by the author of I Never Promised You A Rose Garden and Founder's Praise all center on a crime...actual or theological...ranging from the serious (extortion, suicide, drug smuggling) to the downright comic. Through all the stories runs a common thread of fantasy, a magical approach to everyday events that readers of Greenberg's fiction will find at once recognizable and fresh.
Among the criminals arraigned in these pages are:
1. a woman whose loss of faith progresses from disbelief in holidays to a denial of the laws of physics...with hilarious and surprisingly poignant results.
2. a group of Talmudic scholars who set out to steal time...and pull off a professional heist.
3. a family whose Jewishness is "exposed" by a neighbor and who find themselves a very unexpected manner.
4.a man who drives an ambulance and fantasizes about a superhuman savior of lives...when his own powers are miraculous enough.
5. inmates of a mental institution who voite in a municipal election...and turn power and sanity inside out.
6. a young man on the run, who encounters a startingly contemporary angel in the desert and learns some truths about himself and what it means to be human.
10 Stories in all.
5.0 out of 5 stars Stories from the Heart 12 Aug. 2015
By Douglas W. Reiss - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
After many years, I've read this a second time. Originally published hardcover in 1976, the paperback published 1977 had such a much more appealing cover!! The stories are as fresh as ever and I see much more than my hurried first reading revealed. I'll try to flesh out this review more thoroughly soon, but here is a photo of the paperback original collarerral!!!
