Elias, a 30-something Parisian, learns his grandmother’s death was a suicide. It was carried out, symbolically enough, on Yom Kippur, the Jewish holy day of atonement. This act corroborates the sad, haunting history of Elias’s family. Elias’s voice alternates with three others – his great-grandfather, who recounts the horrors inflicted upon the Jews in his native Poland; his grandfather, who describes his youth under the Occupation; and his mother, whose spirit is shattered by cancer. How to live normally when your family has, for four generations, unceasingly been devastated by sorrows and injustices? A book about coming to terms with one’s origins.
