An excerpt from my novel, "Satori in Brighton Beach . . . or how I found redemption on Barrow Street," which features Johnny Weinberg, an Italian-Jew who has encountered cobalt blue disks of light which are extra-terrestrials in a period of serious unemployment. In this excerpt, after he has confessed to the 300 lb rabbi at the Kosher pizzeria, Johnny tries to get his old waiter's job back at the New Deal Chinese restaurant on Brighton Beach Avenue in Brighton Beach.
