For the Relief of Unbearable Urges

Nathan Englander

Publisher: Vintage Books USAFormat: Paperback

One of the most stunning literary debuts of our time, these energized, irreverent, and deliciously inventive stories introduce an astonishing new talent.In the collection's hilarious title story, a Hasidic man gets a special dispensation from his rabbi to see a prostitute. " The Wig" takes an aging wigmaker and makes her, for a single moment, beautiful. In " The Tumblers, " Englander envisions a group of Polish Jews herded toward a train bound for the death camps and, in a deft, imaginative twist, turns them into acrobats tumbling out of harm's way.For the Relief of Unbearable Urges is a work of startling authority and imagination—a book that is as wondrous and joyful as it is wrenchingly sad. It hearalds the arrival of a remarkable new storyteller.
