In this kindred pair of novellas, sisters Barbara Pokras and Fran Pokras Yariv explore the world of the elderly with deft humor and heart-wrenching detail. Pokras's Feeding Mrs. Moskowitz introduces us to the remarkable Golde Moskowitz, an elderly Russian widow living alone with her memories. In Golde's world, " are everywhere, the dead converse with the living, and even dreams are real. Natalie Holtzman, a thirty-six-year-old graphic artist longing for connection, fills her world with work and with Artie, her commitment-averse boyfriend. One sweltering summer morning, Natalie quite literally "runs into" Mrs. Moskowitz, and the lives of both women are forever changed.
