IN SETTINGS FROM JERUSALEM to Queens, from Hollywoods outskirts to Sarasota, Florida, the characters in this mesmerizing debut collection are drawn to the seductions of religion, soldiering on in search of divine and human connection.

A former drug dealer turned yeshiva student faces his past with a dying AIDS patient. A disaffected American in the ancient city of Safed ventures into Kabbalist mysticism and gets more than he bargained for. A rabbi whose morning minyan is visited by a pair of Siamese twins considers the possibility that his guests are not mere mortals. An aging Jerusalemire chronicles his countrys changes during the biblical year of rest. By turns poignant and comic, unflinching and compassionate--with a dose of fabulist daring--Seekers in the Holy Land explores the dangers and unforeseen rewards of our most fundamental longings.
