Gilad Atzmon's The Wandering Who? is the most controversial book of 2012.
Atzmon, one of Europe's leading jazz musicians, is also an acclaimed novelist. The Wandering Who? is his first non-fiction book.
A profound and hilarious riff on Jewish identity politics in general and Zionism in particular, The Wandering Who? combines humanistic philosophy with biting, taboo-shredding wit. The book has been condemned by arch-Zionist Alan Dershowitz, lauded by University of Chicago professor John Mearsheimer, boycotted by crowds of angry Zionists, and sold in increasingly large numbers by bookstores around the world.
Gilad Atzmon is a growing legend, one of the few larger-than-life characters you're likely to meet in this mediocrity-dominated world.
Come to cheer him...
Come to argue with him...
But don't miss him!
