Format: Paperback
If I could bring this unusual book into popularity, I would be doing many readers a favor. It is a story about family, about self, about Judiasm. Many complex relationships with people who have issues in their lives. The main character is an author and his book is set into the larger book so that the reader is actually going between the two stories. A trip to Russia to aid refusniks is woven into the plot. If you like books with great substance, do yourself a favor and get this one.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Paul Busman on September 21, 2011
Format: Paperback
I was intrigued by the title of this book and the brief dustjacket blurbs, so I took it out of the library. I forced myself through about 100 pages, but finally gave up on it, which is something I rarely do. The author has a penchant for run-on sentences with nested commas, semicolons and parentheses which I don't have the patience to decode. Call me insensitive, but I found the characters far too angst ridden for me to want to spend my time with.
Mind you, I'm an avid reader and have breezed through other supposedly impenetrable books that others had pronounced as unreadable. This novel just failed to grab me and make me want to stick with it.
I am interested in novels dealing with Jewish identity, as my own has undergone many changes. I find the works of Steven Stern more to my taste along these lines.
