Among the characters in the collections 19 stories are a 99-year-old stand-up comedian wearily challenging God to deliver the punch line- a lightning strike survivor whose luck finally runs out- a Princeton-educated trapper who transforms himself into the King of the Jews- a young Second World War veteran unable to talk another vet out of suicide- a carnival sideshow geek with a glass jaw- a stroke victim who suffers a different type of heart attack- and a writer dubbed by an award jury as a connoisseur of longing.

The stories range from laugh-out-loud comedy to wry satire to heart-wrenching romance to sober meditations on the nature of beauty, truth, life and death. The stories show Margoshes, a master story-teller, at the top of his game.
