Reviews for Foreskin's Lament
This irreverent life story of the author is poignant,belligerent,blaphamous and LOL funny. Growing up in an ultra orthodox Jewish environment he was brainwashed to believe in God's close scrutiny of his actions and the reward and punishment that results. As his life progresses, he sheds his religious observance (with a few relapses) but can't escape his concerns of how God will retalliate. He tries confrontation, concilliation and negotiation but is never comfortable.
It was laugh out loud funny even on the second reading but at the same time poignant and thought provoking.
Certainly not for those with rigid religious beliefs or those allergic to strong language. by Les Feiglin
