The Serious Man
February 3, 2015 § Leave a comment
A lonely advocate for Holocaust survivors; an educated, high-class escort who’s found a new purpose: when she tells him she’s leaving the trade, he’ll realize the only real relationship he has is one he’s been paying for.
In THE SERIOUS MAN, losing a person he shouldn’t care for causes an isolated New Yorker to question the significance of his work and his life.
Though they can be read independently, THE SERIOUS MAN is a companion piece to my novella IRIS. Similar in style and theme, the two stories take place in New York City during a harsh winter, and the protagonists make “walk-on” appearances in each other’s stories. I think of these links as a way to expand the world of each story without changing the scope of each emotional story.
THE SERIOUS MAN is now available exclusively for Kindle.
