    " OK I'll say it: you've GOT to read this. But let me qualify that by mentioning that you might not get it if you're not (sigh) Jewish. I think it was Will Smith who said, "Take it from me, gentiles just don't understand." In spite of the Semitic tag, Nathan Englander is as good a young writer as any I can think of. I hope his debut novel which just came out is as good as this. Tremendous short fiction. "

    " Highly recommend it, Englander is a great story-teller, and I don't use that word that often. After this book, and after the Ministry of Special Cases, he's become one of my favorite authors (along with DeLillo, Bezmogis, Calvino and Zadie Smith). "
