Around the time of Jacob's bar mitzvah, his mother leaves his father for another man, a Swedish goy. It's 1987, the first Intifada is about to break out in Israel, and the Jews of Gothenburg are under a certain amount of strain. Stephan Mendel-Enk came to Jewish Book Week to present his acclaimed first novel, a portrait by turns comic and tragic of a family going through divorce and the divided loyalties of Diaspora Jewish life.
