Liberty Barnes, University of Cambridge sociologist & author:
"Jager has created a new genre of storytelling. Masterfully weaving together autobiography, genealogy, demography, politics, Bible stories, and interviews, Jager explores the cultural meanings of fatherlessness and childlessness in the notably pro-family context of modern Judaism. With fitting skepticism and good humor, Jager shakes his fist at God until he discovers in himself the enduring human qualities of compassion, acceptance, forgiveness, and gratitude."
