    MOBI Nathan Englander ç Kaddishcom eBook è ç 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 “quiet 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

    MOBI Nathan Englander ç Kaddishcom eBook è ç kaddishcom kindle, Kaddishcom EpubPeople compare Nathan Englander to Philip Roth and it's a fair comparison only in that they are both Jewish and they both have a talent for writing scenes that include masturbation But Roth lived at a time when he felt his goals included defining for his readers what it meant to be a secular American Jew with the emphasis on American His characters are Jewish yes but in a mostly secular way where the obligation and identity are sublimated and where their greater goal as characters is to be as mainstream American as possible Roth lived through a time when redlining was still an open secret and when people went out of their way to not hire Jews or allow them in their clubs his novels worked on one level to unmask the absurdity that Jewish Americans were different from any other AmericansEnglander is a couple of generations younger than Roth The goal of h

    MOBI Nathan Englander ç Kaddishcom eBook è ç kaddishcom kindle, Kaddishcom EpubI’ve read many short stories by Nathan Englander but this is the first novel I’ve read by him When the story begins we learn that Larry’s father has just died He’s at his sisters house in Memphis Tennessee ‘having’ to sit shivah when the story begins Larry’s sister Dina is driving him insane She’s ruthless about the ancient rituals They must be observed correctly according to Jewish law Larry Dina and their family grew up in an ultra orthodox Jewish home in Royal Hills Brooklyn Larry had turned away from the strict orthodox observances years ago very similar to Nathan Englander himself I wanted to slap Dina for using profanity

    MOBI Nathan Englander ç Kaddishcom eBook è ç 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 whi

    MOBI Nathan Englander ç Kaddishcom eBook è ç kaddishcom kindle, Kaddishcom Epub25Like many secular Jews I am a fan of Philip Roth whose irreverent audacious writing did not shy away from tackling the issue of Jewish identity in the United States especially the generational conflicts between the conservative religious generation and younger and secular liberal youth that shaped the community in the post WW2 yearsSo

    MOBI Nathan Englander ç Kaddishcom eBook è ç kaddishcom kindle, Kaddishcom EpubWhen Larry’s father dies in 1999 sitting shiva at his sister’s house in Memphis is as much as he can cope with he knows he’ll never manage to pray for his father’s soul for a whole year as is his duty in Orthodox Judaism Once he’s back in New York City he’s unlikely to even set foot in a synagogue Camping out in his nephew’s room he breaks off from Internet porn long enough to find a website that promises a yeshiva student in Jerusalem will say

    MOBI Nathan Englander ç Kaddishcom eBook è ç kaddishcom kindle, Kaddishcom EpubLarry is an atheist in a family of orthodox Memphis Jews When his father dies it is his responsibility as the surviving son to recite the Kaddish the Jewish prayer for the dead every day for eleven months He hatches an ingenious if cynical plan hiring a stranger through a website called kaddishcomThis novel is a quick read and not as dense as the last one from this author but Larry is a likeable fool of a character who is still able to go on a deeper journey of self examination in what he owes to his family how much of his identity comes from being Jewish and what that should ultimately mean for his lifeMy rating is like 35 stars It's very readable and Larry is a good character but there is a major character shift that the author doesn't take the reader through

    MOBI Nathan Englander ç Kaddishcom eBook è ç kaddishcom kindle, Kaddishcom EpubAt first I wasn't sure if I would like this book but after about 50 pages or so I was reeled in Not being Jewish myself I didn't understand a few of the Yiddish words and was unaware of some of the traditions But I feel the overall concept of youthful rebellion and then returning as we age to practice and observe family values is something many of us can relate to An interesting take on what it means to be an observant Jew in modern America

    MOBI Nathan Englander ç Kaddishcom eBook è ç kaddishcom kindle, Kaddishcom EpubI have tried to appreciate Englander's humour but all I can manage is the occasional wry smile Larry is an Orthodox Jewish apostate who delegates reciting Kaddish for his father to an unknown yeshiva student via a web site but later returns to his faith and tries to trace the student with a little not unexpected twist at the end of his questAs a plot it's a bit thin and LarryShuli is not a convincing character If the book is intended as satire it was so gentle that I missed it His exploitation of the young student who shows him how to use the internet made me feel somewhat uncomfortable which may have been the author's intention And there is a very weird dream scene featuring glass sex toys the meaning of which was entirely lost on me

    MOBI Nathan Englander ç Kaddishcom eBook è ç kaddishcom kindle, Kaddishcom EpubHow has it come to this?Nathan Englander may well be the finest current practitioner of the Jewish short story His “For the Relief of Unbearable Urges” “How We Avenged the Blums” and “What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank” are all at least minor masterpieces and I can’t imagine teaching a Jewish American literature class without at least mentioning him these daysBut someone maybe him and maybe his agent has told him he has to turn out a novel in order to be genuinely big timeHis first attempt The Ministry of Special Cases had some powerful moments including its remarkable opening conceit of a character who literally erases history His job is to scour grave markers so that the children and grandchildren of the criminal element can
