Words fail me. I’m awash in old-world Jewish culture, complete with imps, demons, and dybbuks. Nobody’s normal. If they start out acting normal, they soon morph into something grotesque. Some of the old-world Jews have emigrated to New York or New Jersey or Miami, but they can’t escape their demons. A few of the stories are very funny, and some of them are very famous (standard college reading material) but mostly, things turn out very badly for everyone.
