Sinopsis: Many people think that the "baby boomers" all became successful and wealthy. Raanan Geberer's "The Diner Under the El," however, shines the spotlight on people from dysfunctional families who have problems with their parents, the work world, and finding love. "The Diner Under the El" takes place from 1987 to 1991, and focuses on three young Jewish men in their mid-thirties from the North Bronx, N.Y. Every week, they go to singles events, and afterward, they meet at the "diner under the el" to commiserate. For the most part, they are set in their ways, but inevitably, change comes to their lives. One loses himself in ultra-right-wing conspiracy theories; the second sees his paste-up job becoming rapidly obsolete; and the third finds salvation with an off-beat woman who introduces him to poetry, New Age mysticism and pop psychology, with hilarious results.
Biografía del autor: Raanan Geberer was born in the Bronx, N.Y., attended local schools, the State University of New York at Binghamton, and Boston University. After working for several years in management for the New York City Housing Authority, he began working in journalism in 1981, and has worked for several newspapers and magazines, although he is contemplating a career change to teaching. He also gives walking tours as a hobby, has played in several musical groups, and has participated in two archaeological digs in Israel. He has lived, at various times, in the Bronx, San Francisco, Manhattan, Indianapolis, Brooklyn, and is now back in Manhattan, where he lives with his wife, the former Rhea Lewin. His main interests are rock and jazz music, politics, religion, and local history.
