Does it have something to do with Israel's lending her A Clockwork Orange and Lady Chatterly's Lover from the library's special `Unshelved' category? Will the young woman's father run Israel out of town? How will Israel recover from his own break-up with his girlfriend, Gloria? And how exactly does a Jewish vegetarian celebrate his thirtieth birthday in Tumdrum? With a bacon scone?And will Israel and his irascible companion Ted ever agree about anything?
