“Miguel’s Bar Mitzvah and Other Stories” is a collection of fifteen short stories about love in alternative families. The title story is about a middle aged gay man who studies for his Bar Mitzvah so that he can recite the prayer for the dead for his adoptive parents, only to discover that he has unfinished business with the birth parents who discarded him when he was an adolescent. The stories encompass many definitions of family, including: tribes, couples, throuples, and families of choice. The stories depict many different family members: gay, straight, bisexual, young, and old, just as themes range from comedy, second chance romance, fantasy, and courtly love. “Miguel’s Bar Mitzvah” will be free on Kindle from September 1st to September 5, 2017.
