Ehud Havazelet: Like Never Before

(Fiction, 268 pp., 1998)

Arranged as a series of interlocking short stories, this “broken novel” chronicles three generations of a family in war-torn Europe, the Orthodox communities of Brooklyn, and rural Oregon as they struggle to hold together in the face of “changing cultures and shifting fortunes.”
