These stories take a juicy bite out of the Big Apple in the early 1960s. The City was in transition. People had emerged from the hollow-eyed Depression, weary of War, and not ready to rock society's boat, let alone rock and roll. But right in front of their eyes, the kids were biting the hands that fed them. All the slimy stuff no one ever mentioned in their MadAve starched collar, pin-curl world - all that stuff oozed out into the streets like some sci-fi monster. Yep, there were worms in the Big Apple. And some of 'em were smiling. No wonder everyone was confused!

Who dares oppose Freedom?! The Pale of Settlement created an arbitrary fence around the western Ukraine, corralling the Jews out of sight of the Tsars, from Catherine the Great down the line to the brutal Alexander III. Settling Beyond the Pale tells of one brave woman's flight to freedom against all the odds. And each of the six short stories maps a personal flight of equal consequence.
