A comic novel about Arthur Fabricant, a divorced architect, who falls into a darkly hued garden of luncheon dates with younger women. He extricates himself by taking on a project building an invisible wall (a symbolic Jewish Eruv) around the entire city of Chicago. A zany, comic novel wilder even than Komie’s award-winning, The Last Jewish Shortstop in America.

 
CONVERSATIONS WITH A GOLDEN BALLERINA

“A comic novel of the first rank...Conversations with a Golden Ballerina is pure comic genius.”

Norbert Blei, After Hours


“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
