A rare blessing . . . a smart and witty novel . . . infused with delight. The Washington Post

Tender, wry and entertaining. . . . Englander s trademark humor is on display, but most striking and moving about kaddish.com is the unabashed sweetness of a son s longing for a father. The New York Times Book Review

Satirical, inventive, and brimming with gallows humor, this novel s whip-smart look at the clash of religious and secular worlds showcases Englander at his best. Esquire
Ingenious. Houston Chronicle
A wonderfully nimble performance. . . .  kaddish.com smuggles profound moral questions under the dress of its light and diverting story. The Wall Street Journal

[A] poignant coming-to-understanding about grief, the meaning of tradition, and love between fathers and sons. Minneapolis Star Tribune
[A] delight of a novel. . . . A marvelous comic fable. . . . Englander s expansive imagination is such that he can convincingly write the part of a secular Jewish hipster and a born-again Jew - and do it with the Yiddish inflections of a Borscht Belt comedian. Associated Press
  A rollicking, generous-hearted tale of faith, identity and family. . . . Englander s best novel so far. Financial Times
Tantalizing. . . . Englander s prose is always sprightly. He makes it easy to turn the page. The Forward
With his usual wit and irreverence . . . Nathan Englander spins out a tale. . . . There s still a good deal of tongue-in-cheek humor in the story that follows . . . but it s also an earnest look at belief, at ritual, at mourning, and at family ties. Vanity Fair
kaddish.com is funny but also profound, a saga of spiritual transformation. . . . Amid the chaos in which we all live nowadays, [the novel] is a bright light in a dark world. Jewish Journal
[There is] a hum of suspense behind this slim tale that belies its subject. Vulture
Simultaneously humorous and deeply moving. . . . [An] excellent comic dissection of Jewish-American life. . . . This novel reads like Chaim Potok filtered through the sensibility of Mel Brooks. Publishers Weekly
Humorous and moving. . . . Englander is a master at displaying the way a single decision, made in a private moment, can stay with us for the rest of our lives and haunt our future. Bookforum
Englander is mischievously hilarious, nightmarish, suspenseful, inquisitive, and deliriously tender in this concentrated tale of tradition and improvisation, faith and love. Booklist
Part fable, part magic realism, part mystery, deeply touching, occasionally weird, almost always funny. Jewish Standard
