The Odyssey of Samuel Glass
by Bernard Kops

A coming-of-age story by a master of storytelling on the need to love and cherish life and grab it by the drosky’s reins. This is Kops at his most irrepressible and irreverent, vibrant and lyrical and connected – to the present and the past. 

“Do the dead know that life still exists, somewhere?” These thoughts were bugging him, piercing and twisting around in his brain. Then he came back down to the Elysian slopes of Muswell Hill ....”

Seventeen-year-old Sam Glass is depressed. Since his father died suddenly, he sees no point in life especially not among the cosy middle class environs where his love of quoting from classical literature falls on deaf ears. Then a strange figure appears who claims to be a rabbi from the Middle Ages, who takes Sam back in time to the Russia of 1881. He meets a panoply of characters including his own forebears and some familiar figures from Jewish history. Then he discovers the secret purpose for which he has been chosen -- to assassinate Tsar Alexander II ……

Tour de force by the ageless Bernard Kops. His eighth novel.
“I know of few writer-prophets as undeservedly unhonoured in their country as the extraordinarily prolific playwright, novelist, autobiographer, poet and teacher Bernard Kops.” 
Michael Horovitz,
Jewish Chronicle
