An eye-opening journey to 17th-century Jewish London
"A mysterious collection of papers hidden in a historic London home sends two scholars of Jewish history on an unforgettable quest.... Kadish’s characters are memorable, and we’re treated to a host of them: pious rabbis and ribald actors, socialites and troubled young men, Mossad agents and rule-worshipping archivists. From Shakespeare’s Dark Lady to Spinoza’s philosophical heresies, Kadish leaves no stone unturned in this moving historical epic. Chock-full of rich detail and literary intrigue.”—Kirkus Reviews
