Overview

The new novel by the internationally acclaimed author- “a farce of nuclear proportions”(Vanity Fair)

Arnon Grunberg is one of the most subtly outrageous provocateurs in world literature. The Jewish Messiah, which chronicles the evolution of one Xavier Radek from malcontent grandson of a former SS officer, to Jewish convert, to co- translator of Hitler’s Mein Kampf into Yiddish, to Israeli politician and Israel’s most unlikely prime minister, is his most outrageous work yet. Taking on the most well-guarded pieties and taboos of our age, The Jewish Messiah is both a great love story and a grotesque farce that forces a profound reckoning with the limits of human guilt, cruelty, and suffering. It is without question Arnon Grunberg’s masterpiece.

Praise

“Grunberg rejects self-serving existentialism, confronts real-world torture, genocide, terrorism, and personal crimes of the heart, and he infuses his visceral, wily satire with biblical fury.”
-Los Angeles Times “Arnon Grunberg is known for writing incendiary novels, but…The Jewish Messiah pushes his bleak sense of humor into new realms….Much more than an impolite screed; Grunberg wants to incite dialogue, not controversy.”
