Overview:

Ice Fire Water: A Leib Goldkorn Cocktail : Leib Goldkorn may be 97 years old, but he shows no signs of slowing down; this follow-up to Goldkorn Tales opens with our hero stealthily procuring a Hustler magazine from a street vendor to celebrate his birthday. Leib's sexual reveries become intermingled with his near-romances with starlets from the distant past: Sonja Henie, Carmen Miranda, and Esther Williams, no less! But Leib is closest to another Esther: the biblical heroine of his yet unperformed opera, written as an analogy to the plight of European Jews in the 1930s and 1940s. Hence, these brushes with greatness provide Leib with an opportunity to transform Verdi's Aida and two separate Darryl F. Zanuck movie projects into the Esther story, to the chagrin of the participants involved.
