A novel depicting a spiky father-son relationship tested to its limits on their last holiday together.
On a nine-day winter break in Tenerife, where nothing is quite good enough, Miki Lentin tries in vain to ask his ailing, elderly Irish Jewish father questions about their past before it’s too late. The absurdity and hilarity of family holidays in the sun are brought to life in this sharp and fiercely honest novel that crosses borders from the narrator’s home in Dublin to his grandmother’s apartment in Israel, carrying the reader on a tide of childhood pain, a search for identity, history, and growth.
