About the Book

            Who’s going to Say Kaddish for the Chinaman’s Dog, is the Ultimate love story. In it there are ordinary people dealing with ordinary things: sex, violence, sexual violence, war, separation, dismemberment, death, and PTSD. It deals with revenge, atonement, redemption, and respect. It also deals in the difference between faith and religion, and ones relationship with one’s own deity. While exploring their world, they discover fundamental truths and each other. This is done in a unique, humorous, and unforgettable way, which can best be described as an emotional roller coaster. It is not for the faint of heart or soul, as the issues are dealt with in a graphic manner.
