A fun­ny, grit­ty his­tor­i­cal thriller set in the world of Jew­ish bas­ket­ball play­ers in the 1930s, based very loose­ly on actu­al char­ac­ters and events. Inky Laut­man, star point guard for the South Philadel­phia Hebrew All-Stars, finds him­self at the cen­ter of a con­spir­a­cy to humil­i­ate Amer­i­can Jews after his coach unwit­ting­ly incurs a gam­bling debt to the Ger­man-Amer­i­can Bund. Packed with action, intrigue, com­e­dy, and romance, Jew­ball is a fresh take on an often-over­looked cor­ner of Jew­ish cul­tur­al his­to­ry, writ­ten in an authen­tic 1930s noir style.
