Film and television stalwart Marge Kotlisky (1927-1997) and newcomer Malcolm Rothman have a wonderful time sparring in this short audio theater piece, adapted from a short story by one of America's most beloved authors. When a young writer is cornered at a posh New York cocktail party by a brash, overbearing, but absolutely fascinating Jewish matron, he hears the tale of a lifetime. It's a fine character study, a captivating shaggy-dog story, and a short history of Yiddish culture all wrapped up in a droll 23 minutes. How marvelous. How Isaac Bashevis Singer. The audiobook was performed before a live audience for the National Jewish Theater and LA Theatre Works in 1992. B.P. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2020]
