In the wake of A.B. Yehoshua’s death in June at age 85, we are returning to one of his most ambitious and memorable novels, Mr. Mani. The book is a six-generation family saga, extending from nineteenth-century Greece and Poland to British-occupied Palestine to German-occupied Crete and ultimately to modern Israel. The narrative moves back through time and is told in five conversations about the bizarrely fated Mani family. While this is perhaps Yehoshua’s most formally experimental novel, it is also profound and deeply moving.
