Light Fell

Evan Fallenberg
LightFellSoho Press (
In 1977, an Israeli scholar leaves his wife and five sons for a charismatic rabbi. Years later, on the scholar’s 50th birthday, he tries to make amends with his family. The crossroads of family, religion, sexuality, and responsibility are unflinchingly explored, and Fallenberg makes all the foreign references feel familiar. The journey to that birthday dinner is long, and no one gets off easy in this narrative, but there are aching, beautiful passages along the way. — Review: Neil Ellis Orts
