Novelist Nathan Englander discusses his latest book Kadish.com, A Novel, at Our Shabbat Table
In conversation with Barry Edelstein, Artistic Director, The Old Globe
Join Pulitzer finalist Nathan Englander (Dinner at the Center of the Earth, What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank) for Shabbat dinner and conversation about his best work yet—a brilliant satire, reminiscent of early Philip Roth, about a son’s failure to say Kaddish for his dead father. Larry is an atheist in a family of orthodox Memphis Jews. When his father dies, it is his responsibility as the surviving son to recite the Kaddish, the Jewish prayer for the dead, every day for eleven months. Larry refuses—thus imperiling the fate of his father’s soul. To appease his family, he hires a stranger through a website called kaddish.com to recite the daily prayer and shepherd his father’s soul safely to rest. For full menu visit sdcjc.org.
