Joram Piatigorsky presents his new short story collection, THE OPEN DOOR! Reading and literary conversation with Barbara Esstman, followed by a book signing and reception.
“The Open Door is a brilliant and vibrant collection of stories that spans the breadth and diversity of literary fiction, from grave to funny to poignant and all points in-between. It’s this range of technique and emotional engagement that pulls the readers through each piece and leaves them anticipating what comes next. In a style reminiscent of Carson McCullers, Piatigorsky presents stories that are vivid with imagery while maintaining a dramatic element balanced by compassion for the characters. These characters truly drive each story to the point that you become one with the fictional dream that the author weaves so flawlessly. Even in being comfortably lost in the dream, you’ll no doubt recognize upon reflection that you are in the hands of a master story-teller. If you take home only one short story collection this year, let The Open Door be the one!”
