A maverick first novel that should prove a winner with all except the humourless! With her first novel "E-mail from a Jewish Mother", Mona Berman takes her place alongside Leo Rosten, author of the classic "Joys of Yiddish". Her novel is a charming, humorous, highly perceptive account of a Jewish mother's relationship with her four daughters, consisting of a series of e-mail messages written by the mother to her daughters over the course of a year. "My darling Sarah Well done! What a splendid decision to go to Perth for Gavriela's Batmitzvah! I am relieved that you were finally able to persuade Cedric, who is always so moralistic, to use the insurance money you got after those wily London burglars robbed you of your few possessions..." 'Love, Mom' (the only name the mother claims) is a would-be old-fashioned Jewish mother of four independent daughters. Her e-mail messages are full of wit and wisdom, much of it with a Jewish slant, and reveal the lessons she has learned during the rocky voyage of her life. Together the e-mails have a definite feminist slant, and by the end the mother's correspondence has yielded a unique, vigorous, life-affirming comic novel which is also a satiric overview of today's world. Full of what is commonly regarded as typically Jewish humour, the letters are also a vehicle for unveiling the mother's journey into self-discovery and personal growth.
