The only Jewish professor at a small western New York state college finds himself at his wits' end when he is asked to shepherd a radical Hebrew scholar around town on a job interview. Combining the tones of serious historical fiction with Borscht-Belt humor, author/narrator Joshua Cohen embodies the voice of Ruben Blum, who is just trying to navigate the turbulent late 1950s when his "Jewishness" is put to the test. Television standout David Duchovny and comedian Ethan Herschenfeld add deadpan cameo appearances reading letters of recommendation for the applicant. Laced with bright musical interludes and soundscapes, this crazy saga may lead the listener to ask, "Really, some of this is true?" The edges of history have never sounded like so much fun.
