Morrie Ruvinsky's "The Heart and Other Strangers" is a masterfully executed collection of short fiction. Injecting layer upon layer of texture and meaning into every tale, Ruvinsky writes that rarest of animals, literature. Human beings dwell in these pages, complete with their desires, foibles, and complexities. Often funny, just as often poignant AND funny, reading "The Heart and Other Strangers" is a trip down Irony Lane that never strains credulity -- unless that happens to be the point. Ruvinsky is a knowing and wise guide through the ventricles and auricles of the human condition. Enjoy the ride.

I love this book! […] It has charm. It has heart. It has fantasy. It has humor. It has has sex. It's schmaltzy! And it's also absurd. I think it’s perfect for anyone. It has a great soul and great imagination. He comes at things from a very different [...] and a very humorous angle in this book of delightful short stories. I think it's terrific. I think [Morrie] is a wonderful writer, but I didn't know he was this good! Buy this book before everyone else does!
