One of the most enjoyable books I've read in years. Each character touched my soul. It made me laugh out loud, cry, and reconnect to long lost memories from my childhood in a Jewish family. Ms. Rosett tells stories that reminded me of Itzchak Bashevitz Singer and Chaim Potok blended together creating an array of warm complex human beings. A true pleasure to read I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to go on an intriguing literary journey.

This is a superb collection of short stories, coalescing around Reform Jewish life in Los Angeles. I met Racelle Rosett a few years ago (at a Jewish Book Council conference), and I've been eager to see this book published ever since. I was lucky to get a complimentary sneak peek, on which I based this interview with the author.
