Two people fall in love in a world where the past is a dangerous country, not to be talked about or visited. As they discover where they came from and where they are going, a bigger, more shattering truth is revealed to them. Kevern doesn't know why his father made him put two fingers across his lips whenever he began a word with a J. It wasn't then, and isn't now, the time or place for asking questions. Ailinn, too, has grown up in the dark about who she was and where she came from. On their first date Kevern kisses the bruises under her eyes. He doesn't ask who hurt her. Brutality has grown commonplace. They aren't sure whether they have fallen in love of their own accord or whether they've been pushed into each other's arms. But who would have pushed them, and why?… (més)

The dialogue is everything in this book; the stories are OK, but the dialogue is the best. To me, Sam Lipsyte produces better fiction but the dialogue us the enthralling stuff. I tired of the book towards the end. ( )

In general, I am not a Howard Jacobson fan. I read [b:Kalooki Nights|297009|Kalooki Nights|Howard Jacobson|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1173488079s/297009.jpg|1369150] very unenthusiastically, and I actively disliked [b:The Finkler Question|8664368|The Finkler Question|Howard Jacobson|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1319018978s/8664368.jpg|13535892]. But I found this book, if not necessarily compelling reading, at least intriguing and somewhat disturbing. I'm aware that "Huh, whaddaya know, I didn't loathe this one" is damning with faint praise, but there you have it. ( )

Following an event the course of society has been changed. Everyone has quasi-Jewish names and the state controls life. I gave up at this point, about 15% into the book. Sorry but life is too short to carry on with this. I'm sure there is a group of book readers who really enjoy sub-'1984' style premises but the Jewish cliches and hints were so blunt and obvious that this book was becoming a drag.

That's a personal opinion ( )
