Overview

Colin Stone, third-generation American and secular Jew, is the narrator of acclaimed author Cameron Stracher's debut novel. Colin lives in a world cast loose from spiritual moorings, a world where "kids get what they want ... the Hanukkah man sees to that." Embarking on a personal journey toward faith and self-discovery, Colin will find what he seeks closer to home. He falls in love with a woman who celebrates the irrational and, in a final confrontation with an unrepentant bigot, he discovers a truth that the laws of science and society cannot explain.

Editorial Reviews

The existential angst of assimilated Jews in America is the theme of Stracher's fiercely honest, caustically funny and ironic first novel ... Stracher writes first-class social comedy.
