Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
this book is two stories which may be read together or in sequence. You pick the sequence. I don't usually like gimicks in books, but this one works due to subject matter. Somehow, I think discussing the subject matter except to say that the protagonists are a writer and a psychiatrist would ruin the story depending on how you choose to read it.

This book has an interesting Gimmick. It can be read from either end. It is two stories that merge. I chose to alternate chapters from the front and back. The reader easily gets involved in the lives of both characters.

Format: Paperback
'If you pick a fight with Hashem, your chances of success are slim.' Too right - Hashem (the name) is God - the unspeakable, unknowable and (tell it not in Gath) frankly unthinkable - yet how to duel with, best, eliminate what isn't there in the first place? I've read nothing quite so oddball since Dictionary of the Khazars. The flavour's Hebrew - think SY Agnon, or Tova Reich's (quite delightful) Master of the Return, though that's more Yiddish - but it's Brian Zumhagen's translation, from the German, that's the true miracle; it's out of this world, an astonishment, a marvel of limpidity. The glossary's a tease, leaving out everything from Hashem to kippa including Yevonish (Russian), shockel, schlomp, Shabak, sharut, shawarma and shmita, not to mention Hilbig (Wolfram) and Kishon (Ephraim) while glossing the crashingly obvious, adds to the sense of disorientation. We're on our own, baby - and that's the way we like it!
