The Instructions, the debut novel fromÂ authorÂ Adam Levin, spans more than 1,000 pages, but staffers atÂ Jewcy.com suggest that no one miss out on the book. The site has even invited Levin to blog over the next week.
After his Jewcy stint, Levin will visit the Twin Cities to discuss his book 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 18 at Magers and Quinn Booksellers, 3038 Hennepin Ave. S., Minneapolis. For information, call 612-822-4611 or visit: www.magersandquinn.com.
The Instructions is the story of 10-year-old Gurion Maccabee, who was expelled from three Jewish day schools for acts of violence and messianic tendencies, and becomes a leader in a lockdown program. Jewcy.com describes the volume as “a book that brings to mind a strange hybrid of David Foster Wallace and Philip Roth as an angsty Jewish kid in the Chicago suburbs.”
