J. J. Steinfeld, in company with Alice Munro and Alistair MacLeod, is one of Canada's most dedicated practitioners of the short story form. In this his tenth book of fiction, Steinfeld delivers ten new stories crafted with the mix of humour and pathos that readers have come to expect of his writing. In these stories, Steinfeld employs his understanding of the social and psychological repercussions of the Holocaust to juxtapose the vulnerability -- even absurdity -- of our modern lives with the resilience of the human spirit.

Review:
Steinfeld hides and exposes the Holocaust in his fiction, as he tries to bridge the gap between contemporary Canadian society and the genocide of an earlier generation of Jews. Michael Greenstein, Globe and Mail
