“Over the years, as Danny has published more stories and novels about films, and suicide, and the existential issues confronting contemporary mankind, I have come to appreciate his erudition, his writing talent, the richness of his imagination, and also his wonderful humor. To spend an evening with him without laughing is quite simply inconceivable,” Elie Wiesel has written of Daniel Stern, the novelist, teacher, and cellist whom this book celebrates. The writers included are Frank Kermode, Elie Wiesel, Edward Albee, Adam Zagajewski, Edward Hirsch, Robert Brustein, Dr. Arnold Cooper, Morris Dickstein, and Hilma Wolitzer, among others.
