Brilliant Literary Debut

Give your mom the gift of literature with this fascinating collection of short stories: The Lost Heifetz by first time author, Michael Tabor. A former Applied Mathematics professor at Columbia University, Tabor uses his observant mind to describe a world of ordinary people through an ironic lens that deftly reveals them. What is unique in this collection of stories is how the author makes us relate perfectly to all the characters by identifying the small agonies of daily life and the dark secrets they carry.  Whether depicting an old violin player with a hidden past, a housewife planning her escape from a terrible marriage or an art dealer infatuated with a potentially double-faced diva, we are held in thrall by the author’s pen to the resolution of each story.
