Kreisler’s Credenza Switch-Hitters
Such a deal! Toofer the price of one. Take a break from that pricey best seller or ghosted toe wrapped in gushing one-liners. Relax with these fine novellas by two unknowns whose modest goal between work shifts is the lonesome journey of personal creative fulfillment.
The two novellas of this present offering were written in the creative writing class Where You Been Hidin? that was created and taught by Desmond Scott Rubinstein. Mr. Rubinstein (1940–1074) was a prolific ghostwriter for Brown & Shoe in the early ’70s. Melville House acquired the manuscripts from his son Aaron (1966–2018), who graciously donated them and many more from his father’s oeuvres located in the boiler room of his alma mater, Mundane University.
George Chadwick (1950–1985) and Joseph Gannon (1945–2001) demonstrated a stylistic flair remarkably echoed in later works by Guy Tuckwell (Casino Dreams); Malcolm Lender (I Break for Death); and Grace Potamis (Homely Daughters), which are all well-published graduates of Scott Rubinstein’s famous class.
