Scribblers On The Roof: Contemporary American Jewish Fiction by Co-authors Melvin Jules Bukiet & David G. Roskies is an anthology of modern short stories by American Jewish writers, all drawn from the successful "rooftop reading" series of New York City's Congregation Ansche Chesed. Blending stoicism, comedy, and bittersweet tragedy, these short tales offer a glimpse of the human condition, and range in setting from the mundanity of daily life to the workings of a divine bar in Paradise. Each brief tale has its own delicious slant in perspective, and all are highly recommended.
