The Prague OrgybyPhilip RothMy rating:3 of 5 starsI clearly am having a spell of Kafka themed reading (see alsomy review of Ian McEwan's The CockroachThis is a short book inPhilip Roth's
Zuckerman series sees his novelist Nathan Zuckerman off to Prague to
recover a handwritten unpublished Yiddish manuscript of stories by the
dead father of an exiled writer. Set in the time of the Soviet
occupation this is part adventure yarn, part serious commentary on
writing and politics. I liked this better than McEwan's Brexit fiasco.ashramblings
