ADAM MANSBACH THE END OF THE JEWS PDF

Original in the way it explores the creative interchange between blacks and Jews and the give-and-take dynamic of artistic partnership. The End of the Jews spans three generations, two countries, a half-dozen subcultures, a dozen characters and a handful of narrative styles and literary techniques Very few writers could have attempted all this without farcical results. Adam Mansbach succeeds, brilliantly. One of the perils of fiction of this scope is that it can degenerate into faux social history and the characters become window dressing for the sweep of events.

By Ruth Franklin March 30, Tapeworms, fleas, writers: all are essentially parasites, insinuating themselves into the intimate spaces of a host organism and then sucking out any material deemed valuable. So what if they cause distressing gastrointestinal effects, maddening itching or irreparable family feuds? The universe of the parasite is amoral, knowing no good other than its own. At its center are two dueling Tristans, grandfather and grandson, both writers. Once a successful and controversial novelist, by the late s he is approaching old age and watching his creativity dwindle.

Even the things he made up are true. Image Adam MansbachCredit Matthew L. The story of the Tristans is interwoven with the story of Nina Hricek, a teenage photographer in Czechoslovakia whom we meet just before the Velvet Revolution. Where exactly is the line between appropriation and exploitation?

An exquisite early set piece describes him and a friend D. His writing is adjective-happy and sometimes ungainly, but it charms with an almost goofy persistence. Tristan Brodsky spends much of the novel complaining about the mantle of Jewish Writer that was thrust upon him, but he offers no alternate coherent vision of himself.
