Item description for El Nombre Del Padre/the Name of the Father (Spanish Edition) by Isaac Goldemberg...

A few years prior to the Second World War, two childhood friends arrive to San Sebastin to live. There they find a country in chaos where the Jews are persecuted. A dramatic story of love recreating the myth of the wandering Jew.

Blurb in Spanish:

Unos aos despus de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, Jacobo Lerner y Len Minsky, amigos de infancia, llegan a San Sebastin provenientes de una aldea rusa. Encuentran un pas catico donde los judos son acusados tanto de ser capitalistas como comunistas, por consiguiente de ser responsables de la debacle econmica.

Con el tiempo, van armando y desarmando sus vidas en ese lugar, y ante el horror de Jacobo, Minsky va cayendo en la locura. Sus arengas frente a la iglesia del pueblo le hacen ganarse las burlas y el odio de los habitantes. En este marco se desarrolla un drama que es al mismo tiempo una historia de amor y una recreacin del mito del Judo Errante.

El nombre del padre es una recreacin de La vida a plazos de don Jacobo Lerner, novela que se public en 1978 y recibi una gran acogida en Amrica Latina, Europa y los Estados Unidos.
