I am delighted to learn that Rabbi David Small, the hero of Harry Kemelman's excellent mysteries, is about to be made available again in e-book format.
Between 1964 and 1996, author Harry Kemelman wrote a dozen mysteries featuring Rabbi Small, the spiritual leader of a Conservative Jewish congregation in a fictional Boston suburb. The books appealed to a wide audience, both Jewish and non-Jewish. Here on the blog a few years ago, I reviewed the first book in the series, Friday the Rabbi Slept Late, and it was also the subject of one of my audio reviews on the Classic Mysteries podcast, which you can listen to by clicking here.
Our friends at Open Road Integrated Media tell me that all of Kemelman's books about Rabbi Small are being republished on Tuesday, July 21 for the Amazon Kindle and for other formats as well. I've always enjoyed the Rabbi Small mysteries, and I hope to be able to review more of them this fall, now that they will be widely available once again. If you haven't met him yet, do yourself a favor and get one of these delightful books - I'd start with the first one and keep going.
