5 Stories High and Rising
Five Stories High and Rising is a pocket-sized anthology of Jonathan Papernick’s short fiction. All five of these stories focus on the struggles and complications of youth in the modern world, whether it is the drama of interfaith attraction or the confusion and loneliness of not fitting in. Papernick’s acclaimed comic masterpiece “The King of the King of Falafel” appears again in this collection for those who have yet to read the hilarious apocalyptic tale of two feuding rival falafel stand owners.
Beginning in the summer of 2011 Papernick took to the streets to sell his books by pushcart as “Papernick the Book Peddler.” He continues the innovative tradition of cutting out the middle man and bringing “market fresh fiction directly to the people,” with his new book Five Stories High and Rising, printed right here on Harvard Book Store’s Espresso Book Machine.
Papernick is the author of the short story collections The Ascent of Eli Israel and There is No Other, as well as the novel Who by Fire, Who by Blood. He is Senior Writer-in-Residence at Emerson College.
