About this product
- DescriptionAsk Avigail Imagine you are about to leave Egypt and venture out into the wilderness. Do they accept foreign currency? Did Moses stop at a gas station, prior to departure, and get directions? Does Egyptian cotton wrinkle? Which is more practical to bring; a blender, or your mother in law? When the Hebrews ask Moses with trepidation, what to expect of the Wilderness, Moses replies: Don't expect Las Vegas. Who is there to give advice? Ask Avigail, a feisty, Biblical-era sagette!!!
- Author BiographyThe moment Shashi Charton Ishai sat up in her carriage and said her first words, Arthur Godfrey, her folks knew she was destined for the Arts. Her brother, Steve, who was nine years older, read her George Orwell's ANIMAL FARM as a bedtime story. To this day, she suffers from involuntary facial twitches, every time she passes a hardware store and spots a jar of glue. Her mother lived on a steady diet of gumdrops, cigarettes and coffee (no sugar). She loved to read the Star Magazine and preferred fictional friends to real ones. Her father's hobby was collecting unslicable cheese ends at the local supermarket. Upon his untimely demise, the Appetizing Department held the cheese flags at half mast. Shashi hails from North Bergen, N.J. She received an M.A.T. in English as a Second Language, and worries that her foreign students are tawking, eating chawklit, walking their dawgs and planning to visit New Yawk. She is married to Yacov Ishai, and they have two adopted children: Zehava (China), and Zaki (Guatemala). They have moved to Netanya, Israel from Teaneck, New Jersey. They also have a dog named Stanley Fisher, named after the economics whiz. If this book sells and they accumulate some money, Stanley will tell them where to bury it. It is the only bank where there is no penalty for early withdrawl, except for a sperm bank.
