Description

One of Esquire's Most Anticipated Books of 2019, Lit Hub Most Anticipated Book of 2019, The Millions Most Anticipated for 2019, Vulture's Most Anticipated in 2019, Boston Globe Most Anticipated for 2019, TIME's Most Anticipated for March 2019 and Esquire's Best Books to Read This Spring. Larry is the secular son in a family of Orthodox Brooklyn Jews.

When his father dies, it's his responsibility to recite the Kaddish, the Jewish prayer for the dead, every day for eleven months. To the horror and dismay of his sister, Larry refuses - imperilling the fate of his father's soul.

To appease her, Larry hatches an ingenious if cynical plan, hiring a stranger through a website called kaddish.com to recite the prayer and shepherd his father's soul safely to rest. This is Nathan Englander's freshest and funniest work to date - a satire that touches, lightly and with unforgettable humour, on the conflict between religious and secular worlds, and the hypocrisies that run through both.
