This radical work, whose protagonist is the novelist Nathan Zuckerman, ranges from a Christmas Carol service in London's West End to a Sabbath evening celebration in Israel's occupied West Bank. It suceeds in evoking both the nationalist militancy within modern Israel and the coded but palpable manifestations of anti-Semitism in establishment England.
