Mendelssohn is on the Roof

by Jiri Weil
£10.00   paperback  Daunt Books (2011)

Mendelssohn is on the Roof by Jiri Weil The third Daunt Books publication is a deeply moving novel by a remarkable yet neglected chronicler of the Holocaust.
Full of dark humour and bitter irony, Weil's novel traces the transformation of ordinary lives during the Nazi occupation of Prague. This is the story of the struggle to survive in the labyrinthine Nazi regime, and the courage required to retain hope and humanity.
As Philip Roth - recent recipient of the 2011 Man Booker International Prize - writes in his introduction to this edition: 'Weil writes about savagery and pain with a brevity that in itself seems the fiercest commentary that can be made on the worst that life has to offer.'
