The group discusses "The Netanyahus" by Joshua Cohen.
About this Pulitzer Prize-winning book:
Corbin College, not quite upstate New York, winter 1959–1960: Ruben Blum, a Jewish historian — but not an historian of the Jews — is co-opted onto a hiring committee to review the application of an exiled Israeli scholar specializing in the Spanish Inquisition. When Benzion Netanyahu shows up for an interview, family unexpectedly in tow, Blum plays the reluctant host to guests who proceed to lay waste to his American complacencies. Mixing fiction with nonfiction, the campus novel with the lecture, "The Netanyahus" is a wildly inventive, genre-bending comedy of blending, identity, and politics that finds Joshua Cohen at the height of his powers.
