Dave Margoshes

Dave Margoshes is the author of four other novels and three short story collections, including A Book of Great Worth. Dave Margoshes grew up in New York, where his father was a reporter and columnist for the Yiddish daily, Der Tag (The Day). His 2012 collection of linked short stories, A Book of Great Worth, is a fictional love letter to his father and an evocation of the world he lived in on the Jewish lower east side. His new novel, Wiseman's Wager, is based loosely on the life of Henry Roth, the great Jewish-American novelist (Call It Sleep).
