Publisher's Summary

It's the late 1960s. The Pinch, once a thriving Jewish community centered on North Main Street in Memphis, has been reduced to a single tenant. Lenny Sklarew awaits the draft by peddling drugs and shelving books - until he learns he is a character in a book about the rise and fall of this very Pinch. Muni Pinsker, who authored the book in an enchanted day containing years, arrived in the neighborhood at its height and was smitten by an alluring tightrope walker. Muni's own story is dovetailed by that of his uncle, Pinchas Pin, whose epic journey to North Main Street forms the book's spine.

Steve Stern interweaves these tales with an ingenious structure that merges past with present, and his wildly inventive fabulism surpasses everything he's done before.

    Story
    "Reader doesn't know how to pronounce Yiddish or Hebrew"

    This is a fabulous story ruined by a reader who mispronounced most of the Yiddish and Hebrew words. Sometimes it took me a while and relistening to figure out what was being said.

    Story
    "Oy, what's with the Yiddish?"
    Any additional comments?

    Interesting story and nice narration EXCEPT that much of the Yiddish pronunciation, and some of the Hebrew really grated on the ear; it would have been really nice if Mr. Doersch had received more tutoring!
