an indictment of the indomitability and fragility of the human condition
ST. LOIS PARK, Minn (PRWEB) May 18, 2013
In his new novel “The Orthodoxy of Arrogance” (published by Trafford Publishing), author M.B. Moshe tells the heartwarming story of a family coming to terms with their past while sorting through history using richly detailed, complex characters that come to life on each page.
Mordichai “Moritz” Lebenschitz is the self-centered, pompous man who drives the story. His wife, Hannah, is a weak-willed, mousy woman who comes with Mortiz from Germany to America. He molds her into a strong woman who eventually finds the tenacity to confront her husband and his questionable past.
Hanna and Moritz have a daughter, Yeshiva, whose complicated relationship with Hannah mirrors the power struggles often seen between teenage daughters and their mothers. Yeshiva has a secret friend, Sarah Greene, who shares a love of disco dance and learns an important lesson about vanity after a disfigurement changes her life forever.
An excerpt from “The Orthodoxy of Arrogance”:
“I can see social networking someday where people are allowed to follow what other people are doing from day to day, hour to hour, even from minute to minute; that is, if they’re stupid enough to document everything they do. There’s the capacity for using algorithms to chart how people react in a certain situation or how something will affect a certain portion of the population. Hannah, imagine what can be accomplished. Imagine how what we have accomplished can be diminished.”
Moshe has expertly crafted a story that highlights the strengths and weaknesses of human emotions, what he calls “an indictment of the indomitability and fragility of the human condition.”
