TORGOV, Morley. The Outside Chance of Maximilian Glick : A Novel. (Toronto): Lester & Orpen Dennys Publishers, (1982). First Edition. Pp (6),[1]-186. 8vo, black cloth, red lettering to spine. “In The Outside Chance of Maximi lian Glick, Morley Torgov returns in a contemporary vein to the setting of his bestselling A Good Place to Come From, that small, northern Ontario city where the social climate falls into the same category as the seasonal climate — an ongoing act of God best endured with a maximum of resignation anda minimum of talk. Onto this city of some 50,000 descends one day a Lubavi tcher rabbi, a member of an extremely Orthodox group who clothe themselves in the fashion of their Eastern European forefathers and wear their beards long and sideburns untrimmed. The Lubavitcher, through a clerical error, has just been appointed rabbi of the small Jewish community. Naturally, he captures the attention of the entire city as a seller of elixirs might have done in horse-and-buggy times. And to Maximilian Glick, about to become bar mitzvah, the rabbi personifies all the strictures of small-town provincialism he is longing to escape from. However, things aren't quite what they seem — for the young Lubavitcher would rather shed his rabbinical garb to become a stand-up comedian....” - from the dj. Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 24.00
