Isaac is a witty, dazzlingly intellectual story, an exploration of morality in the contemporary world, a true Modern Fable which, as one might expect from the author of such previous works as The Barfighter, pulls no punches.
This is a book which doesn’t shirk from posing tough existential, philosophical, and religious questions. It’s a mature novel, but it is also, by turns, very funny and quite moving. Populated by a cast of engaging characters, stuffed with remarkable Woody Allen-esque description, and searing social commentary, Isaac is at once a fable and more than a fable.
Above all, this is a novel about relationships and identity. It’s about the human condition.
