THE FRIENDS OF THE WEST STOCKBRIDGE LIBRARY PRESENT

 

MARSHALL JON FISHER , AUTHOR OF


A BACKHANDED GIFT

  

 


THE AUTHOR OF A TERRIBLE SPLENDOR will present his newest book, A BACKHANDED GIFT.

 

“It’s the late 1980’s, and Robert Cherney has left New York to teach tennis in Munich. In addition, he’s coaching the Mattathias Club men’s league team, a motley group of neurotics whose eccentricities seem exacerbated by their situation as Jews living in Germany. He’s also trying to forget Lexa, the focus of years of erotic obsession back In New York. Love, tennis, sex, artistic frustration, and the dilemma of being a German Jew are all ingredients of this seriocomic literary delight. As Robert searches for the right woman and his true calling, he can’t help but wonder if an insufficient gift is worse than no gift at all.”
