Telescope is a story cycle about Lawrence Teitel, the protagonist of Living Room (Boheme Press, 2001). The collection deals with seeing distances: above all, the growing distancing of Lawrence's family as they cope with new challenges and Lawrence's own maturation, physical and spiritual. The cycle is made up of nine stories, each covering a different stage in Lawrence's development after his family has moved from their old neighbourhood in Montreal to a somewhat wealthier suburb, Ville St. Laurent.
There were only two things that made Passover bearable. The first was the Israeli chocolate syrup to make chocolate milk; it tasted better than Quik and mixed more easily. The other was the Montreal tradition of celebrating the end of Passover by going to Yangtze's Chinese restaurant on Van Horne.
