enchantment: A novel

Hannah's perceptions of her Orthodox German Jewish heritage, her five brothers and sisters, the complicated power of families, the madness of money, the obsessive workings of memory itself, are as disquieting in their sharpness as they are lucid in their irony. 

The world, she finds, is a treacherous  place where love is closely knit with pain, But even the limitations of her own point of view are not lost on Hannah. She is all too aware that her perspective is fixed in the vise of her childhood: “My mother,” she says, “is the source of my unease in the world and thus the only person who can make me feel at home in the world."

Much of the power of Enchantment comes from its directness - almost, at times, its brazenness - and from its determination to hold nothing back ... a story that draws the reader on unresisting.
