An insomniac realises that he cannot escape his heritage after he begins to live as Jewish people whilst asleep. An elderly man carries out Pulkhan haTik, the ritual of the suitcase. A horologist obsesses over fixing his past. The Jewish community of Golders Green tries to find a place for tradition and ceremony in a modernised world. Rohan Kriwaczek's collection of short stories encapsulates the tension between the public persona and the private self. Engaging, touching, and thought-provoking, Kriwaczek deftly addresses the nature of identity and asks what it means to be Jewish.
