THE SHIKSA SYNDROME by Laurie Graff (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
With some hair dye, green contacts, and a few mannerisms borrowed from her best friend, Jewish New Yorker Aimee Albert transforms herself into a shiksa goddess in order to catch a man. But how long can the charade go on?
NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Earphones® Award-winning narrator, Hillary Huber. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.
“Hillary Huber reads this story of mistaken identities with lots of energy and enthusiasm.”—AudioFile

shiksa n. [Yiddish] 1: term used to describe non-Jewish women 2: a quintessential blonde beauty 3: a Jewish boy’s dream 4: a Jewish girl’s nightmare
After splitting up with her gorgeous WASP-y boyfriend, Jewish New Yorker Aimee Albert decides to take her mother’s advice and find a nice Jewish boy. The only trouble is that the Jewish guys are all falling for the blonde shiksas.
With some hair dye, green contacts, and a few mannerisms borrowed from her best friend, Aimee transforms herself into a shiksa goddess, and soon she attracts a wonderful Jewish man. Now the question is, how long will the charade go on?
The Shiksa Syndrome is a tale of love and identity, and how the search for one can sometimes play havoc with the other.
