New Novel!

I’m so excited to tell you that my ninth novel, Boychik, is now live on Amazon in ebook form.

Here’s what the book is about:

In 1930s Brooklyn, in the depths of the Great Depression, the son of a deli man dreams of making it big in Hollywood. A rich girl with family secrets fantasizes about a life in service to the unfortunate. When their worlds collide, they’re tempted by an unlikely and forbidden romance that could cast dark shadows over their bright futures.

I had a lot of fun writing it and doing all the research—including how salmon becomes lox, how pickles are made, and more about the neighborhoods where my parents spent their childhoods. The boy on the cover is my grandfather, Dave Boris, at seventeen. I’ll be writing more about him later.

The paperback version will be available soon. You can learn more about the book here or go to the Amazon page.

I hope you’ll check it out!

    I’m in the middle of Boychik and loving it. My grandfather came from Belarus and had a live poultry market under the EL in Queens. Not exactly the same, but close enough. His marriage to my grandmother was arranged by cousins. He was a tyrant apparently. She bloomed after he died, going to the theater, having friends and going to school.

    Anyway, enjoying another of your wonderful books. I know I can count on a good read. Thanks.
