Beschreibung:

Fixated on the crimes which have been committed against his people, but unable to live among them, Max moves away, and draws cartoon histories of Jewish suffering in which no one is much interested. He is drawn into the Holocaust obsessions from which he realises there can be, and should be, no release. This book is a comedy of cataclysm.
Fantastic reviews greeted this latest novel from Howard Jacobson and it was longlisted for the Man Booker. Comic and entertaining, yet angry, powerful and troubling, it grapples with the legacy of the Holocaust in contemporary life. 'This is a welcome return to the Yiddish-inspired humour at which Jacobson excels, and which has rightly earned him comparisons with Philip Roth' "Guardian"; 'A novel of genius' "Independent"
