Book Description

16 Dec 2005
Thirteen stories by the author of the critically acclaimed "The Genizah at the House of Shepher" address universal themes of yearning and displacement, love, loss and the struggle to belong. A latter day Jewish Odysseus spends his life planning an intricate journey to the Promised Land, while an English father stranded in London mourns for his faraway Italian son. A man without a past searches the world for potential relatives; while in the title story, a Jew and a Muslim cast adrift in a Yorkshire landscape find momentary sisterhood over a copy of the Koran. Blending irony with pathos, the mythical with the mundane, "Kafka in Bronteland" gives voice to a rich mix of characters living outside traditional patterns of identity, in a world of complex migrations and tumultuous change.

By redheaded reader - Published on
Ms. Yellin has a keen ear for dialogue and a sharp eye for surroundings. It takes a vivid imagination to produce these truely captivating stories. This book cannot be distinguished by just one story alone. It is a book to own and read aloud and come back to over and over again. I really love this book.
