Praise

Praise for Mother for Dinner: 

“Maintaining tradition becomes all-consuming in Shalom Auslander’s novel. . . Mother for Dinner . . .  turns a jaundiced eye toward ethnic identity and the burdens of tradition as they concern a different oppressed minority group. . .jokes are dependably good.”–The Wall Street Journal

“Auslander uses his signature dark humor to brilliantly satirize tribalism in America… Graphic situations abound; even the characters are revolted, while, through their often ludicrous stories, Auslander explores the sense of otherness and the value of diversity. This could be a portrait of any ethnic group that has been consumed by America, though, in this case, it’s unclear who is devouring whom.”   –Booklist

“Auslander. . .turns his taboo-shattering satiric gaze to cannibalism in this outrageous, salty take on contemporary culture.. . [a] riotous dissection of cultural formation and a community’s hunger for meaning. “–Publishers Weekly
