    I ve never heard of Shalom Auslander before picking up Beware of God, his debut collection of short stories I approached the book without any specific expectations, but ended up reading them all during a surprisingly warm afternoon at the park I m happy that I ve read it and that I discovered Shalom Auslander, as his book is a total hoot, and I really had a lot of fun while reading it I m now looking forward to readingof Shalom

    A friend of mine lent me this book after i had lent him Auslander s A Foreskin s lament They are a collection of short stories with the common theme of God If you are of a nervous disposition as far as God centred stories are concerned then i would advise you to avoid these but if, like me, you bank on God actually having a good sense of humour then read these The language can be a little choice and Auslander is certainly not back

    So, the obvious thing to say because it is true is that this book is a good mix of Woody Allen and Chaim Potok It is true because it is funny in a Jewish way , like Allen s short stories, and also knowledgeable about Ultra Orthodox Judaism in a Jewish way , like The Chosen or Asher Lev But, really, it s not actually as funny as Woody Allen And it doesn t say anything as interesting about Orthodox Judaism as Chaim Potok does So, if you

    Charming, witty, concise and edgy.Naturally, considering the background of Shalom Auslander, most of the stories in the book deal mainly with aspects, views, history and stories from Judaism though to say only that much would not suffice to pay the content credit The way in which the stories were conveyed weren t difficult to read, but the things learned from them are well worth the time invested this is because of the various referenc

    If you weren t afraid of GOD before you read this book, you may suffer a bit of retributive paranoia afterward My favorite piece was the Charlie Brown allegory Auslander should be writing for the late night comics if he s not already
