Short Story: That American Thing

tin lizzy


The Jewish Literary Journal, the only online zine that publishes all genres of creative writing on Jewish themes and Jewish identities, has just published one of my short stories, “That American Thing,” which is very loosely based on stories my father used to tell me about how my grandparents met when they first immigrated to America.  I was well into my teens before I understood that my father often stretched the truth a bit when it came to our family’s history, so perhaps it’s not all that surprising that I grew up to be a teller of story.  You can read the story in its entirety here.
