Description - Shlepping the Exile by Michael Wex
This hilarious novel is an inside portrait of orthodox, post-Holocaust Judaism in a place that it never expected to be. Its the story of Yoine Levkes, boy hasid of the Canadian Prairies, his refugee parents...confronted with dying people, an ailing culture, the perils of near orphanhood, the allures of Sabina Mandelbroit...too religious to be normal and too normal not to realize this...Humour, satire, irony...and more. Its all here in Michael Wexs first and only novel -- SHLEPPING THE EXILE which has also been published in German -- but, of course, by a Swiss publisher!
