Spanning two centuries in the life of a Jewish family, from 19th century Romania to 21st century England, A Piece of Work explores the nature of identity and the legacy of the past.

The title A Piece of Work comes from the speech by Prospero in The Tempest - 'your mother was a piece of work', a fabulously cryptic phrase that the author loves.
