Beschreibung

A provocative and complex novel certain to establish lzakson's reputation among English readers. Meir, the narrator of the story, is the personal servant of Nathan, a rich tycoon consumed with bazarre obsessions. The deep connection between Meir and Nathan takes its toll on the relationships each man has with the women in his life: Rina, Nathan's first wife; Rachel, Meir's wife, and Dana, Meir's lover. Wealth makes Nathan powerful, shameless, able to satisfy his every whim--buying up priceless art and antiques, collecting women, founding a political party, purchasing an entire village in Galilee, or assembling his own team of "experts" from all over the world, among them a chess master. Why? Because he can. Wealth fuels Nathan's control over those around him, particularly the faithful Meir. While exploring the complicated personalities of his characters, Miron Izakson neatly combines surreal and real elements to deal with questions of Jewish culture and beliefs. Nathan's obsession with collecting is driven by his desire to obtain a fourteenth-century manuscript written by the King of France when he was in exile in England. This record sheds light on issues about royalty and regime, exile and national identity. Meir's assistance in this pursuit is at first innocent and touching, but soon turns morbid and ironic. The power struggles in this book speak to issues of human weakness and reveal connections between attraction and rejection, dependency and exploitation. Izakson explores the intricacies of human relationships and the instablity of moral and geographic boundaries in contemporary society.
