A well-written, enjoyable novel about three couples (Jewish men, Gentile women) who share a townhouse on the Upper West Side and rent the first-floor restaurant to a missionary looking to attract Jews to Christianity by feeding them food and sermons. A silly idea, and silly characters, but not a particularly silly novel, done pretty straight. Fortunately, Appel̕s a good writer, or it would have been a dumb sitcom.

This book was incredibly boring and devoid of the humor that I appreciated in Wake Up Sir. The plot is predicatable which seems like an impossibility given the basic elements of the story and continues to beat you over the head with the same basic dialog over and over. It just didn't keep my attention.
