Dancing on Tisha B'Av by Lev Raphael

Dancing on Tisha B'Av by Lev Raphael


Lamda Literary Award Winner


Lev Raphael is a bold and original writer, exploring the conflicts of life as a gay Jewish-American, the son of Holocaust survivors.  A master of the the short story, his fiction parades a dazzling array of narrative voices; in America he has been widely published in both gay and Jewish magazines.  



"His character are voices of reason, observers rather than judges... The prose is poetic in its simpliticity, the sex scenes sweat with passion" Los Angeles Times

"A bright new talent in American fiction... each story is a spellbinding delight" Booklist

"Raphael examines his Jewish heritage with uncompromising honesty, describing those who remain haunted by the past and those who try to forget it, those who celebrate their identity and others who deny it to the point of self-hatred"  The Advocate
