Potatoes are Cheaper

Max Shulman

It's the middle of the Great Depression and Morris Katz and his cousin Albert are broke. But that’s all about to change when they head off to college on a mission from Morris's mother to find rich, unattractive Jewish girls to marry. The boys arrive on campus armed with a secret weapon: the poetry of Morris’s cousin Crip. Within a day, Morris is courting Celeste Zimmerman, the frumpy heir to a movie theater franchise. But then an Irish Catholic beauty falls under the spell of Crip’s verse and goes gaga over Morris. She thinks he’s a Jewish-Communist revolutionary poet, and who is he to tell her otherwise? But is it happiness Morris truly wants, or money? And what will Mama Katz say?
