The Very Model of a Man
With the birth of Abel, a new obligation falls on his brother, Cain, to find a language that contains all he feels of love and hate, and to go on finding it, long after he has committed the first and worst of crimes.
This is, in part the story of Cain and Abel, told from the point of view of Cain. It is also about the nature of family relationships and sibling rivalry and about Jewishness.
Along the way the book makes observations about skin problems among angels and pre-Freudian psychological complexities.
