Description: Yoram Kaniuk has been hailed as one of the most innovative, brilliant novelists in the Western World (The New York Times), and The Last Jew is his exhilarating masterwork. The Last Jew is a sweeping saga that captures the troubled history and culture of an entire people through the prism of one family. From the chilling opening scene of a soldier returning home in a fog of battle trauma, the novel moves backward through time and across continents until Kaniuk has succeeded in bringing to life the twentieth century s most unsettling legacy: the anxieties of modern Europe, which begat the Holocaust, and, in turn, the birth of Israel and the swirling cauldron that is the Middle East.
