we guarantee to make you laugh!

Breaking and Entering

Set in rural Michigan in 1995, Breaking and
Entering considers, with humor and insight, the
complexities of modern life.

Don't miss our first Comedy Cabaret with
author David Javerbaum! (Okay, it's not really
GUARANTEED. We won't refund your money
or give you free stuff or a complimentary JCC membership if you
don't laugh, so don't even ask! But trust us — it's going to be fun.
Like even more fun than finding yourself seated next to your boss
at a home-based party for plastic storage goods. Could you even
have imagined THAT?)

The novel is the story of an interfaith couple, Richard
and Louise Shapiro, who are both therapists.

When they move from California to Michigan, they
encounter a world they could never have imagined.
Louise finds herself becoming close to a married
minister, while Richard's new friend is a member of the local militia, who is
reportedly linked to the Oklahoma City bomber.

Finally breaking his literary silence after 1,400 years, God talks about
everything from creation to the internet. Yowza! That's a lot of material!

David Javerbaum is one of the funniest people ALIVE! The winner of
11 Emmys for his work as head writer and executive producer of"The
Daily Show," he won a Grammy for"A Colbert Christmas!' His new book
is collaboration with God, and it's HIS memoir.

'An exploration of Tolstoy's dictum about unhappy families ... A rich and
satisfying novel that explores in a significant way contemporary issues of
family, religion and politics."— Kirkus Reviews
