A dynamic collection of stories that portrays different generations and explores various genres with compassion and dry wit
In The Melting Pot , nothing is ever what it seems. In these short stories from critically acclaimed author Lynne Sharon Schwartz, characters grapple with the desires and needs of daily life, no matter how absurd or mundane. In the title story, a woman finally reveals her tangled family history to her widowed lover. In another tale, an ageing womanizer undergoes more than just a midlife crisis. In "So You're Going to Have a New Body!" a woman experiences a surreal surgical sterilization. The Melting Pot demonstrates Schwartz's many talents coalescing into a determined and striking whole.
