Mordechai Schamz

French Literature Series
Marc Cholodenko
Translated by Dominic Di Bernardi

In a series of comic vignettes and letters, Mordechai Schamz sets out to investigate himself, his world, and the language which makes them both intelligible. Dumbfounded at every turn and undiscouraged by—perhaps even unaware of—his failures, he confidently gets lost in the labyrinth of his investigations.

Reminiscent of Flaubert’s Bouvard and Pecuchet, Calvino’s Palomar, and Beckett’s Watt, Mordechai Schamz ponders the mysteries of life through clichés and solipsisms, making himself the master of the illogical and the clown of the absurd.
