‘It has that great old Jewish quality of combining high seriousness with low playfulness, it is rich and ironic and not ironic, subversive yet curiously traditional: it holds one’s attention, it provokes one into thought.’ – Rick Gekoski (American Jewish writer, Man Booker judge, 2005, chair of International Man Booker judges, 2011)
