Death by Pastrami

(2014)
A novel by

 
In these seventeen wry stories, Bernstein introduces us to the unsung residents of NYC's garment district - proud lace sewers, unscrupulous ragmen, and salesmen with a penchant for stolen pens. Bernstein is a master of brevity - most stories clock in at under ten pages - and he is most concerned with the particulars of human yearning. A man offers a million dollars for a "first-rate" human heart. An engineer chooses the suit he will wear every day for the rest of his life. A funeral salesman discovers the deadly power of the pastrami sandwich. In their breadth, these stories capture a New York that recedes further into memory every year: a garment district populated by people with at least a passing acquaintanceship with the old country and older ways of making things.
