Tehila Lieberman Venus in the Afternoon
Tehila Lieberman Venus in the Afternoon-Nov 12th at 1:00pm at Mandel JCC
In chiseled and elegant prose, Lieberman conjures wildly disparate worlds in this rich debut collection of short stories. A middle-aged window washer mourning his wife and an estranged daughter, begins to grow attached to a young woman he sees through the glass; a writer, against his better judgment, pursues a new relationship with a femme fatale who years ago broke his heart; and the daughter of a Holocaust survivor struggles with the delicate decision of whether to finally ask her aging mother how it was that she survived. The stories never force a choice between tragedy and redemption, but rather invite us into the private moments and crucibles of lives as hungry and flawed as our own.
