The Shiksa Syndrome

The Shiksa Syndrome Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Do shiksas really have more fun? A Jewish girl is about to find out in Laurie Graffs wickedly witty novel.

SHIK·SA (shĭk'sə)

n. Yiddish

1. A non-Jewish woman. 2. A quintessential blonde beauty. 3. A Jewish boys dream. 4. A Jewish girls nightmare.

Manhattan publicist Aimee Albert knows a good spin, but shes the one who winds up reeling when her gorgeous, goyishe boyfriend breaks up with her-on Christmas! Aimee dusts herself off and decides to seek companionship with a member of her own tribe. Theres just one problem: all the shiksas are snapping them up!

So when the very cute, Jewish, and gainfully employed Josh Hirsch catches Aimees eye at a kosher wine tasting and mistakes her for a shiksa, whats a girl to do? Unfortunately, the charade goes on longer than Aimee planned, and her life becomes more complicated than a Bergman film. But Aimee begins to discover that her identity isnt as easily traded as a pair of Jimmy Choos, and she must decide if having the man of her dreams is worth the price of giving up so much of who she is.
