really liked it
bookshelves: descent-literature, classic-literature, jewish-interest
Recommended for: Jung fans, Jewish history

Multifacted book has much to say about fragmentation of the self and identity. Although disjointed narratives brillliantly contribute to the themes of the book, some readers (not me) may be put off by them.Interesting connections to Jungian ideas and Jewish history. Poignant moments in book, as one sees the liveliness of the Jewish community before the Holocaust.
