Rebecca Dana worshipped at the altar of Truman Capote and Nora Ephron, but real life in New York City did not measure up to the literary paradise of her dreams. When her dream life is turned upside-down, she answers a Craigslist ad and trades her West Village apartment for a shared place in Crown Heights. Meanwhile, her new roommate Cosmo—a young Russian rabbi and jujitsu enthusiast—faces his own crisis of faith. Shuttling between religious extremism and secular excess, this is a thought-provoking tale for the twenty-first century.
