Kaddish.com
by Nathan Englander




Overview -
When his father dies, it falls to Larry--the secular son in a family of Orthodox Brooklyn Jews--to recite the Kaddish, the Jewish prayer for the dead, every day for eleven months. But to the horror and dismay of his sister, Larry refuses, imperiling the fate of his father's soul. To appease her, he hires a stranger through a website called kaddish.com to say the prayer instead--a decision that will have profound, and very personal, repercussions. Irreverent, hilarious, and wholly irresistible, Nathan Englander's tale of a son who makes a diabolical compromise brilliantly captures the tensions between tradition and modernity.
