Epstein first introduced Leib Goldkorn in "The Steinway Quintet," a novella which received the American Academy of Arts and Letters' award for Distinguished Achievement in Literature. In this volume, Goldkorn--Holocaust survivor, flautist, and pianist--is back in an expanded account of the original novella along with two other long tales that continue his richly comic spiral of misadventures that are at once comedies of manners and serious accounts of culture colliding with casual violence.
