Too Many Men

Ruth Rothwax, a successful woman with her own business, Rothwax Correspondence, can find order and meaning in writing words for other people - condolence letters, thank-you letters, even you-were-great-in-bed letters. But as the daughter of Edek Rothwax, an Auschwitz survivor with a somewhat idiosyncratic approach to the English language, Ruth can find no words to understand the loss her family experienced during World War II.Ruth is obsessed with the idea of returning to Poland with her father, but she doesn't quite understand why she feels this so intensely. To make sense of her family's past, yes. To visit the places where her beloved mother and father lived and almost died, certainly. But she knows there's more to this trip. By facing Poland, and the past, she can finally confront her own future.'At once haunting, riotously funny, and deeply touching...The most delightful surprise of the year.' Publishers Weekly'Amazingly funny ... a masterpiece.' Weekend Australian'An extraordinary achievement; a feat of wit, passion and intellect.' Simon Schama'Irresistible.' People'Funny...powerful...chilling.' O magazine'Sophisticated and tender, comic and serious.' New York Daily News'Heartfelt.'
