We are pleased to announce January 2016 as the release date for for Verklempt by internationally best-selling author Peter Sichrovsky. This small handsome volume is a collection of eleven short-stories and includes a Foreword by award-winning director and playwright Ari Roth. In Yiddish, “verklempt” can mean “choked with emotion.” These are love stories where love is a bitter pill, a joke, a missed chance at happiness, a secret, a ghost, or a longing to be with a person one cannot even remember. Sichrovsky writes without embellishment, spare outlines of characters that feel familiar, and infuses them with dark humor and tragedy in equal force.
