The Rug Merchant

Phillip Lopate, Author Penguin Books $9.95 (224p) ISBN 978-0-14-009676-7
Melancholic, shy rug merchant Cyrus Irani is a middle-aged, steadfast bachelor whose relationships with women dissolve, whose store rent has been tripled, whose mother wants him to marry a nice Zoroastrian girl. PW commented: ""Lopate maintains a tone and atmosphere of genteel defeat in his sensitive portrait.'' (March)
