    PDF Nathan Englander ´ ´ Kaddishcom MOBI Ì kaddishcom kindle, Kaddishcom Epub“Kaddishcom” is a novel but its first part serves as another reminder of Nathan Englander’s extraordinary skill as a short story writer Set 20 years before the rest of the book it describes a contentious family gathering following a patriarch’s death Larry — the black sheep — has come from Brooklyn to stay with his Orthodox sister in Memphis as they sit shiva Despite hearing the “uiet muttering stream of well wishers” he feels harshly appraised “I want them not to judge me just because I left their stupid world” he hisses at his sister in the kitchen These two siblings lash out at each other with words sharpened by grief Larry insists he be allowed to mourn in his own way His sister upbraids him for thoughtlessly ignoring their traditions “It’s no reason to treat me like a freak

    PDF Nathan Englander ´ ´ Kaddishcom MOBI Ì kaddishcom kindle, Kaddishcom EpubOy Where to begin? I’m of conflicting opinions when it comes to reviewing Nathan Englander’s newest work kaddishcom I want to give it four stars because I really like the author and the way he writes But for almost all of the second half I felt mostly annoyed and even a bit contemptuous of the main character Larry turned Shuley I came to kaddishcom having read Englander’s short story What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank which I absolutely loved I received the hard copy book kaddishcom recently at a book fair where I also got to share a few words with the author both during the A and when he autographed my book So I already felt connected upon starting kaddishcom I will rate the book ⭐️⭐️⭐️12 And the connection goes even deeper The book is a Jewish story about Larry who grows up in an Orthodox community in Brooklyn shrugs off his Orthodox ways to become a thoroughly secular albeit somewhat lost adult This becom
