What to Do About the Solomons

ebook
A "funny, sexy, and smart" multigenerational saga following the secret lives of an (over) extended Jewish family—from Israel to America (Judy Blume).

More than oceans divide the Solomons. And now, it's a scandal. Prodigal son Marc Solomon, an Israeli ex-Navy commando living in Los Angeles, is falsely accused of money laundering through his California investment firm. As his home is raided, Marc's wife, Carolyn ―concealing her own dicey past―makes hopeless attempts to hold their family of five together. Not surprisingly, news of Marc's disgrace makes its way from Santa Monica to a kibbutz on the Jordan River Valley, and the rest of the mortified Solomon clan: Marc's self-absorbed wannabe movie star sister, Shira; his rich, powerful and fed-up construction magnet father, Yakov; his childhood sweetheart, Maya; and his brother-in-law Guy, a local ranger turned "mad artist." As the secrets of the community are revealed through various memories and tales, we witness the tenuous bonds that can keep the Solomons together, and the truths and rumors that could ultimately tear them apart.

Elegant, witty, and provocative, What to Do About the Solomons weaves contemporary Jewish history through a distinctly modern and very savvy tale of family life. "I ended [it] absolutely swimming with affection, not just for the characters but for the multiple worlds that created them . . . there's something profoundly lovely―and loving―about the Solomons" (New York Times Book Review).
