L.E.S. Author Boris Fishman Kicks Off Sophomore Book Launch at Museum at Eldridge


Local author Boris Fishman kicks off the launch of his second novel, Don’t Let My Baby Do Rodeo (Harper Collins, 2016), at the Museum at Eldridge on Tuesday, March 29th. There is a reading and a wine reception afterwards.

We interviewed Fishman, who lives on Grand Street, in 2014, after his literary debut, A Replacement Life, landed on the cover of the New York Times Book Review. Read our story here.

The museum writes:

In his new novel Don’t Let My Baby Do Rodeo, Rusian-Jewish immigrants Maya and Alex Rubin adopt a baby from Montana who comes along with a cryptic exhortation from his birth mother: “Don’t let my baby do rodeo.” When their son suddenly turns feral – consorting with animals, eating grass, and running away – Maya and Alex embark on a cross country road trip to Montana to find answers. It’s their first drive west of New Jersey, and they are forever transformed by this exploration of their adopted country.
