Dancing on Tisha B'Av
Whether bearing witness to the Holocaust and its aftermath, dealing with conflicts between being gay and traditional Judaism, or confronting anti-Semitism and homophobia, these passionate stories by a prize-winning author break new ground in contemporary fiction.
"The power of [Raphael's] stories comes from his passion for telling the truth."
"A dazzling collection of short fiction with a powerful message for Jews and non-Jews alike."
"A real master of short fiction has appeared among the gay writers who illuminate our lives... comparisons with Edmund White, Andrew Holleran, David Leavitt would not do justice to what Raphael achieves."
