Summary "Contains the title work in which a Radcliffe girl and a Rutgers boy learn about live; and includes five additional short stories by the award-winning American author." "’Goodbye, Columbus’ is the story of Neil Klugman and pretty, spirited Brenda Patimkin, he of poor Newark, she of suburban Short Hills, who meet one summer break and dive into an affair that is as much about social class and suspicion as it is about love. The novella is accompanied by five short stories that range in tone from the iconoclastic to the astonishingly tender and that illuminate the subterranean conflicts between parents and children and friends and neighbors in the American Jewish diaspora."
