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 back through time and is told in five conversations about the bizarrely fated Mani family. The climax takes place in Athens in 1848, with Avraham Mani's overpowering tale about the death of his young son, Yosef, in Jerusalem. This is a profoundly human novel, rich in drama, irony, and subtle wit.
