Product Description

Katchor is the author of 'Julius Knipl, Real Estate Photographer: The Beauty Supply District.' This 19th-century carnival of hucksters and Kabbalists and pilgrims is a surreal delight filled with the magic of timeless fiction. In 1825,Mordecai Noah, a New York politician and amateur playwright possessed of a utopian vision, summoned all the lost tribes of Israel to an island near Buffalo in the hope of establishing a Jewish state (near Buffalo?). His failed plan (whew!), a mere footnote in Jewish-American history is merely the starting point for Ben Katchor's imagined epic that unfolds on the streets of New York a few years later. B&W illustrations. 108p.
