Without a doubt, one of the outstanding novels I've read about the fate of a Jew and the Jews under the Nazis. I don't really know of one like it. --Philip Roth
An astonishing work of fiction . . . Jiri Weil's sophisticated, modernist, human imagination has made the dark horror of the Holocaust into an occasion of enlightenment. --New Yorker
A unique and deeply moving book, filled with echoes of Kafka and hints of Kundera and Skvorecky. --Observer
About the Author
Jiri Weil was born in 1900 in Prague, and was one of the best-known writers in Central Europe in the 1930s and the immediate post-war years. In 1942 Weil escaped transportation to the Nazi camps by faking his own death. He remained in hiding for the rest of the Second World War and his novels Mendelssohn is on the Roof and Life With a Star are based on these experiences. Weil died in 1959.
