Synopsis: Book by Rose, Howard

From Publishers Weekly: It's puzzling why the late Rose chose to pluck a character from his novel The Pooles of Pismo Bay , the chronicle of a fictitious family that led the radical Industrial Workers of the World union, and throw him into this weird adventure in 1950s Chicago. The aging Reuben Poole, an "extinct labor activist," feels that he has little in common with the postwar generation, and for good reason. In the course of a day, he observes a brutal beating on a Chicago beach, rescues the victim and is the object of cruel witticisms from a group of arrogant, upper-class picnickers. Mercifully brief, the book concludes with a long, rambling and decidedly bizarre "what if" section: how would the then-fledgling State of Israel react if a fake messiah were to visit? In case the reader isn't thoroughly bewildered, Rose makes matters even more obscure in the last pages by repeatedly citing a pseudo-Biblical verse ("Holy, Hcap ok?yes/pk oly, blessed be!") and a line from an Israeli song ("Zum gallee gallee").
