Red City Review praises Verklempt: Stories by Peter Sichrovsky

Verklempt cover-thumbRed City Review writes:

“What makes these stories so entertaining and engaging is the fact that the characters in each of the stories are the kind of people you’ve met before. They have to face relatable issues like dealing with the complications of a new love, getting older, struggling to keep their families together, and coping with the boredom that often comes from typical every day life. Even though most of the characters have a strong Jewish connection, they are different ages, emerging from different backgrounds and histories, while showing their true colors in unique and unexpected ways. The author succeeds at painting realistic and raw human emotion, giving insight into the lives of characters who are fully formed, every word on the page in each story holding an immense amount of weight.”
