Description

Mr. Mani is a deeply affecting six-generation family saga, extending from nineteenth century Greece and Poland to British-occupied Palestine to German-occupied Crete and ultimately to modern Israel. The narrative moves through time and is told in five conversations about the Mani family. It ends in Athens in 1848 with Avraham Mani’s powerful tale about the death of his young son in Jerusalem. A profoundly human novel, rich in drama, irony, and wit.

A family epic told in one-sided conversations, working backward from 1982 Israel to 1848 Athens. Highly recommended.
