“A beautiful, thoughtful portrait of the anxieties and paradoxes of modern Jewish life.” – Linda Grant on The J-Word

Yiddish-speaking octogenarian Jack Silver repudiates everything Jewish, while his brilliant 10-year-old grandson Danny knows nothing at all about his heritage. But when Jack is attacked by antisemitic thugs, grandfather and grandson set out to get justice in their own unorthodox way – and discover a shared identity spanning generations.
