Set in the immigrant streets and tenements of Brooklyn, Jack Pulaski's stories sparkle with incident, character, memory, and a touch of the surreal. In "Religious Instruction," a widowed scripture teacher channels her passion into a retelling of the primal stories of the bible that transixes her adolescent students: "When she marries again we will not hear these stories, not the same way." "Music Story" sketches a chilling portrait of urban ethnic territoriality, while in "Father of the Bride," a young Jew pursues the skeptical, profane and eccentric Carlos, seeking his daughter's hand."Get the book and read it.
