"Finding Gordon Lipschitz" is the story of one man's desperate search for his long-lost friend and high school valedictorian. At his twenty-five year high school reunion, Harris Greenberg realizes that his once promising life has turned into a depressing failure. When he discovers that Gordon Lipschitz hasn't been seen since graduation, Harris embarks on a desperate mission to find him. Enlisting the help of old friends, Gordon is found in the most unlikely place, a shell of his former self. The search becomes a journey of self-discovery for four friends whose lives turned out much differently than any of them expected.

Critics Reviews
"Finding Gordon Lipschitz is a wild, white-knuckle tale that crashes Long Island Jewish dysfunction into post-Katrina New Orleans chaos. Finkelstein's suddenly middle-aged protagonist must pay the tolls of his reckless youth, but even as he tackles divorce, depression, drug addiction, mental illness and unemployment, the story maintains a lively bounce and an easy wit." -David Peisner, SPIN

Hilarious, raunchy, honest and entertaining, Finkelstein's novel will take you down, out, and everywhere in between with Harris Greenberg as he searches for his childhood friend and valedictorian Gordon Lipschitz. -Lauren Adam, Where Y'at Magazine

"Finding Gordon Lipschitz is a gritty coming-of-age novel for adults. Harris Greenberg's search for his long-lost high school friend is funny, tense, and poignant. The story is an absolute winner."
-James Thayer, author of "White Star"

"Finding Gordon Lipschitz is a weird, wild and witty journey." -Bret Love, INsite Magazine
