Tova Reich: My Holocaust

(Fiction, 326 pp. 2007)

Is it appropriate to write a satiric novel about the place of the Holocaust in contemporary culture? Reich has done just that, asking difficult questions without providing easy answers. Jostling to capitalize on the legacy of human victimization are survivors and their children, Arabs, Poles, vegetarians, and mystics, all fighting to dominate a national Holocaust museum in the name of their own sacred causes.
