The Frozen Rabbi


Steve Stern's The Frozen Rabbi is on my to-read list, and this time I didn't hear about it on the radio or even read about it in a review journal (or BookPage).  I saw it come in last week, looked it up in the catalog, and read this summary:

"How does a nineteenth-century rabbi from a small Polish town end up in a freezer in a suburban Memphis home at the end of the twentieth century? And what happens when a teenage boy thaws him out and miraculously brings him back to life?"

I don't know, but I really really want to find out

You can read parts of the novel online thanks to Tablet Magazine, who has also generously provided an interview with the author.
