Fiction • 9.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Assaf Cohen gives an inspired performance as he deftly narrates this saga of a family's greed and corruption. He gets into the cunning mind of the matriarch, Hadassah, and portrays her amoral husband, Zev, once a concentration camp kapo, with the self-satisfied tone of man who is driven to succeed and motivated by carnality. Cohen delivers subtle but convincing Iranian, Israeli, and Yiddish accents as he gives the monstrously wealthy and badly behaved Morfawitz clan their due. Well into the novel, the family's deformed first son, Hezekial, who has been institutionalized his most of his life, returns and is revealed as the novel's narrator who recounts the family's horrific history. His voice of truth reveals the mayhem that their acquisition of wealth and power has caused. A.D.M. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2023]
