More about the author
Review quotes
"An irresistible romp about a lovelorn 19th-Century doctor who falls in with Sigmund Freud--and some dangerously attractive women." --O Magazine
A Curable Romantic has no end of fun with its themes, notably the limits and usefulness of language . . . At the same time, it’s a tale of great compassion and reverence—a remarkable, deeply felt examination of man’s relationship to an ever-changing world.”
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
“A high-energy, wild performance . . . The postmodern Jewish novel as mash-up of genres: Yiddish folktale, sentimental education, Freudian case history, erotic confession, utopian parable, all wrapped up in an ‘alternative history’ of Jewish emancipation.”
The New Republic
