4/17 ADAM MANSBACH at Cody’s

Posted by novoscene on April 17, 2008

ADAM MANSBACHCritically acclaimed author Adam Mansbach’s The End of Jews, reads tonight at Cody’s. Go check out the new downtown local!

“The End of the Jews features grandfather-and-grandson graffiti bombing missions, a Czech girl passing for black in America, relatives betraying each other through novels, stoned Bar Mitzvah DJs forcing people to dance the hora to Eric B & Rakim’s microphone fiend, swaggering Jewish geniuses remaking postwar American culture, and much more. The End of the Jews offers all the rewards of the traditional family epic, but Mansbach’s irreverent wit and rich, kinetic prose shed new light on the genre, somersaulting gracefully through time and space.”
