SITTING SHIVA FOR MYSELF is a sad-funny collection of short stories, exploring the zeitgeist of Berkeley, California in its age of innocence (1950's- 1980's), now disappeared. A fragmentary memoir, its people are grieving women, failure-men, overly precocious children, extraordinary manqus caught in the maelstrom of the shifting plates of cultural change. Written with a NY Jewish sensibility, ironic, absurd, despairing, often in dialogue, it expresses the increasingly public outspokenness of maternal ambivalence, horror of self-sacrifice, wifely rage turned inward.
