Scribblers on the Roof

Contemporary American Jewish Fiction
An anthology of stories edited by

The first American Jewish anthology in a decade to include both established masters and the newest generation of gifted storytellers.

The authors gathered here represent contemporary American Jewish fiction at its best. Drawn from the renowned rooftop reading series at Ansche Chesed, a synagogue on the Upper West Side in New York City, Scribblers on the Roof brings together revered masters, such as Cynthia Ozick, Lore Segal, and Max Apple, with gifted newcomers, including Pearl Abraham, Jon Papernick, and Dara Horn. Whether set in New York, Jerusalem, Moscow, or in Paradise, their stories - funny, tragic, sensuous, surprising - sparkle with originality, vitality, and chutzpah.

Among the other contributors are Jonathan Ames, Myra Goldberg, Ken Kalfus, Binnie Kirshenbaum, Jonathan Levi, Mary Morris, Sonia Pilcer, Jonathan Rosen, Norma Rosen, Lucy Rosenthal, Lynne Sharon Schwartz, Steve Stern, and Aryeh Lev Stollman.
