South Florida and Miami Beach as seen from the balcony of Alex Rincon Pollack, a lawyer whose Chicago law firm has gone bankrupt. He's a transplanted Floridian living a new life, single, conducting multiple romances all under the guidance of his literary hero, Isaac Bashevis Singer, whose apparition he meets at a Speed Dating event at the Bal Harbour Mall and who gives him tips on women and horses. Loaded with literary allusions and set in Surfside, Gulfstream race track, North Beach and Budapest.

BALCON

“Komie’s work is rich in the traditional storytelling of Isaac Singer; sometimes rollicking in the humor and passion of Philip Roth; with prose running as clear as Hemingway; with background voices tangled at times in Kafkaesque conundrums. But he is pure Komie. Read an opening sentence or two from any one of his stories and he is impossible to put down.”

Norbert Blei, After Hours
