9780983868538: The Jewish Dog

Filtering the darkest, most dramatic period of modern Jewish history through the naive, often sage, perspective of a remarkable dog, The Jewish Dog offers readers a view of the Holocaust as never seen before.

This bestselling novel in Israel follows the life and thoughts of Caleb, a contemplative dog unusually fascinated with human affairs. Born into a German-Jewish household in the mid-1930s, Caleb witnesses firsthand the rise of Nazism and the Holocaust. When events separate him from his Jewish owners, he is adopted by a Nazi family and employed by the SS as a military dog.

Deeply ironic and even humorous, The Jewish Dog presents political commentary on humanity and degradation, as Caleb’s philosophical musings explore loyalty, identity, and the fine line that separates humanity from animals.

About the Author:

Asher Kravitz is a wildlife photographer, a pilot, a former detective with the Israeli police force, and a lecturer on mathematics and physics at the Open University and the Jerusalem College of Engineering. He is the author of the novels Boomerang, Magic Square, and Mustafa Rabinowitz. Michal Kessler is a translator of Hebrew literature.

Review:

"Kravitz employs harrowing, detailed imagery and fluidity of language . . . . The result is powerful and heart-wrenching, and Caleb is unforgettable. A remarkable achievement." —Kirkus Reviews

"A finely crafted and entertaining novel that is remarkably thoughtful and thought-provoking. Unique and unusual, entertaining and absorbing, The Jewish Dog is one of those novels that will linger in the mind and memory long after the book is finished and set back upon the shelf." —Midwest Book Review
