“Like its author, this ambitious novel is by turns hysterically funny, wildly neurotic, uniquely sensitive, and heart breakingly honest.”  –  Pat Conroy

The best-selling new & future releases in Jewish American Literature & Fiction

Hi Folks,


Welcome to my spanking new web site.


FAMOUS ALL OVER TOWN is coming out. You can already pre-order it. Please do. In FAMOUS ALL OVER TOWN, Everybody’s famous, or infamous: Jews, Gentiles, blacks, whites, biracial families, mixed marriages, marines, Northern transplants, gays, straights, no saints but lots of sinners, nut-cases galore.

I’ll be talking about everything here in my blogs, like I always do, not just FAMOUS ALL OVER TOWN, but everything, everyone: friendship, marriage, education, kids, backseat drivers, creativity, writing, movies, literature, humorlessness, the news, nut-case neighbors, why Jews can’t change a flat tire. Respond, comment–talk to me, Bubba. Nothing will go unexplored. Lots of it will be really stupid too, which I think should be fun. Because not only was I an anomaly growing up as a Jew in Beaufort, SC–as anomalous as a Jewish cowboy, a Jewish hillbilly, or a Jew without Irritable Bowel Syndrome–I was a dumb one.

The gentiles were smarter than me.

Read my book, my blogs, and hear all about it.
