(From the publisher):
In A Jewish God in Paris
the protagonist, suffering from a guilty conscience after his latest love affair, takes his wife and children to Paris in a final attempt to save his marriage: But his beautiful wife resists his ingenious peace-making efforts with silence and "unrelenting hatred." He has been unfaithful to her once too often and the situation has gone beyond the point of forgiveness. He views his infidelities as a way to embrace the wide variety of the world. Nevertheless he is sincere in his soul-searching, mercilessly examining the darkest corners of his soul and apparently inadvertently allowing the reader to witness his torment.
With Only Sandals on his Feet follows the adventures of the 15-year-old Victor Kuza. A precocious teenager with a passion for theatre, Kuza discovers a book about the mysterious Chamber Theatre in a secondhand bookshop and makes it his mission to find out more about it.
Total Indecency is a tribute to 1920s theatre director Igor Terentiev, whom we meet in 1917 as he flees from the Bolsheviks to Constantinople, abandoning his wife and daughter. He returns to Moscow, mounts a wildly unconventional production of a Soviet play, and mischievously applies for Party membership, giving his father's occupation as Colonel of the Tsarist Gendarmerie. This causes his arrest and exile to forced labor.
