The Bubbe Meise and Other Stories

Bubbe Meise: A grandmother’s fable. An "old wives tale". An untrue story. Sometimes related to superstition. Often, an Aaron Zevy short story.

Aaron Zevy is at it again with a new collection of amusing tales and vignettes about his life with his friends, both real and imagined, and family. Like his first collection, Almost the Truth: Stories and Lies, which Kirkus Review called "... a series of hilarious an easy going style which is both polished and seemingly improvised," Bubbe Meise and Other Stories continues Zevy's trademark approach to storytelling, which blurs the lines of fact and fiction.

With a tip of the hat to David Sedaris’s self awareness and Etgar Keret’s metafiction, but a unique style and voice very much his own, Zevy amuses and astounds.

Don't try to figure out what is real and what is not just sit back and enjoy!

After all, Zevy reminds us to "Never let the truth get in the way of a good story."
