Author:  WILLIAM SANDERS
TAGGART ROPER IS A FREELANCE WRITER WHO HAS SEEN BETTER DAYS A FAR AS MONEY COMING IN TO LIVE.  HE OCCASIONALLY TAKES JOBS AS A PRIVATE DETECTIVE TO PAY HIS BILLS.  HE HAS BEEN REQUESTED TO FIND THE PERSON WHO MURDERED THIS YOUNG LADY’S MOTHER’S MURDERER.  ROPER GETS INVOLVED WITH SOME NASTY PEOPLE WHO SEEM TO WANT TO DO HIM IN. HE FINDS OUT THAT THE MURDERED MOTHER HAD BEEN TAKING MONEY FROM A VERY WELL KNOWN PREACHER FOR A LONG TIME.  HE DIGS UP PAPERS THAT SHOW THE MURDERED MOM WAS IMPREGNATED BY THE REVEREND WHEN THEY GREW UP TOGETHER ON A FARM.  THE GIRLS MOTHER BECOMES A PROSTITUTE TO SUPPORT HERSELF AND GIVE LIVING MONEY TO HER DAUGHTER.  WHAT TAG ACTUALLY FINDS OUT IS SURPRISING ABOUT THE MOTHER’S RELATIONSHIP WITH THE POPULAR PREACHER AND WHO KILLED HER AND WHY.  THE BOOK IS NOT A GREAT BOOK BUT IT WAS OK TO FILL IN THE TIME UNTIL I GOT MY REQUESTED BOOK FROM THE LIBRARY.

THIS BOOK IS A COMPILATION OF SHORT STORIES WRITTEN BY WELL KNOWN AUTHORS OF THE JEWISH FAITH AND SOME UNKNOWN TO ME AUTHORS.  SOME OF THE STORIES ARE ON ASSIMILATION,EMERGING FEMINISM, RELIGIOUS IDEALS AND SECULAR AND TRADITIONAL THOUGHTS.  MANY OF THESE STORIES WERE BEYOND MY UNDERSTANDING.  I DID, HOWEVER, ENJOY SAUL BELLOW, E. L. DOCTOROW, BERNARD BELLOW PHILLIP ROTH, I. B.SINGER WHO WERE FEATURED IN THIS BOOK I READ AS A READING CLUB MEMBER.
