Editorial Reviews

Midwest Book Review - Small Press Bookshelf
"THE JEW'S WIFE is a fine collection from a newly debuted master of storytelling, and is a solid and recommended pick for short fiction fans everywhere."
Richard Cumyn
"First-time readers of Thomas J. Hubschman's short stories can be forgiven for thinking they have discovered a forgotten master of the form: his fiction is classic in tone, yet remarkably current in its concerns. It's old-fashioned to speak of heart and moral vision and the redemptive power of narrative, but this book has all those. It's astonishing to think this is a first collection and not a "best of.” It reads like the culmination of a life's work."
Anjana Basu
"Perfectly crafted short story collections are rare – which is why Thomas J. Hubschman's The Jew's Wife is such a treat. For Hubschman, it’s God who’s in the details--those minor aspects of everyday life that writers often miss…. This is a worthy addition to the world of the American short story and certain to win devoted fans."

Finally. A free book really worth reading. The author's expository style and the manner in which he engages you as a reader are nothing short of fantastic. Mr. Hubschman brings a palpable understanding of what it means--for example--to be caught up in the constraints of centuries-old, life-numbing religious dogma. Make sure your Nook's fully charged; I couldn't put this book down.
