Foreskin's Lament Zusammenfassung

Foreskin's Lament Shalom Auslander

Shalom Auslander was raised with a terrified respect for God. Even as he grew up, defying and eventually being cast out of his community, he could not find his way to a life in which he wasn't locked in a daily struggle with Him. Foreskin's Lament is a rich and fascinating portrait of a man grappling with his faith, his family and his community.

`Bracing and witty . . . Never, frankly, can there have been a more blasphemous book . . . Foreskin's Lament somehow expresses the ideas of Richard Dawkins in the tone of David Sedaris. You can read it for the humour, you can read it as reportage into a secretive and bizarre world, you can read it as a personal tale of triumph over adversity, or you can just read it for the misery. It doesn't really matter. But do read it' William Sutcliffe, Independent on Sunday

`One of the funniest books I've ever read, killingly so' Hilary Spurling, Observer

`Exceptional . . . very, very funny' Time Out

`Painfully poignant and hilariously noir' Jewish Chronicle

`By turns hilarious and devastating . . . Few books are laugh-out-loud funny. This one is' Naomi Alderman, Sunday Times

`America's hottest, funniest, most controversial young Jewish memoirist . . . blackly hilarious, groundbreaking' The Times

Foreskin's Lament Bewertungen

aFierce, funny, and subversively heartfelt...With his middle finger pointed at the heavens and a hand held over his heart, Auslander gives us "Foreskinas Lament," Mazel tov to him. And God? Well, heall survive.a
a"New York Times Book Review"
aAuslander writes like Philip Rothas angry nephew... a scathing theological rant, a funny, oddly moving coming-of-age memoir, and an irreverent meditation on family, marriage, and cultural identity. God may be a bit irritated by this book, but I loved it.a
aTom Perrotta, author of "Little Children" and "The Abstinence Teacher"
aA laugh-out-loud quarrel with God.a
aA terrific book I was sad I read in so few sittings, because I wanted more.a
