    • Jason K. Friedman's "Fire Year" is a collection of 7 pieces of short fiction that Salvatore Scibona threatens, in the forward (not to be confused with The Forvartz), will make the reader "remember the first time you read Philip Roth." These stories didn't bring Philip Roth to mind for a second when I read it, but do they need to? And why? Because both writers are guys who write about Jewish protagonists?

    • I liked Fire Year a lot. I don't know much about what it's like to be Jewish in the South and found these stories fascinating. My favorite story was "There's Hope for Us All." I thought about it for days afterwards, a sure sign that it made a big impression on me. I'll be very interested to see what Jason Friedman writes next.





    • Seven unconventional short stories about art, love, religion set in Georgia and the Deep South. Thought provoking. About people who remain outsiders.


    • Thoroughly enjoyable read. Interesting stories, well developed characters, enough to make one think without being dry.
