Said by Singer to be his favourite among all his books The Penitent is the story of Joseph Shapiro's search for salvation After. There are errant rockets firing incongruent messages in my brain right now I hated it It was brilliant What a diatribe What did you expect from a book called the Penitent This was SO 1969 sexual revolution It was believable It was not it was every man's fantasy Oh dear meBut thank goodness there's a uote on the back cover that validates my conflicted mind This from author Susan Hill 'A deeply disturbing book which will make you think uestion argue disagree by turns but will not leave you either unchanged or unmoved and whose message will remain with you perhaps forever afterwards' Well I'm not sure about the forever afterwards part but I can agree with the restI was hooked by the preface's first two paragraphs In 1969 I had my first opportunity to catch a glmpse of the Wailing Wall about which I had heard so much It looked somewhat different from the Wailing Wall carved on the wooden cover of my prayer book That one showed cypresses but I didn't see trees here Jewish soldiers guarded the entrance way It was daytime and a crowd of Jews of all kinds had gathered There were Ashkenzic and Sephardic Youths with earlocks hanging to their shouldersBeggars held out hands for alms some even haggling with their benefactors The Almighty conducted business here on a twenty four hour basisI stood and looked at the Wall and at the surrounding streets which were inhabited by Arabs The houses seemed to stand as if by a miracle one looming over the next and leaning out and jostling for a better view of the stone wall that stood as a memento of the Holy Temple The sun blazed with a dry heat and everything smelled of the desert of ancient destruction and of Jewish eternityOkay Let me digress In 2012 I had the opportunity to visit the Wailing Wall an experience I will never forget There are soldiers everywhere near the entrance The wall is split in two parts one side for women the other for men There were many different kinds of Jews there as well as a group of Japanese tourists a choral group of African Americans from Harlem donning bright yellow outfits and countless other world travelers and daily local penitents I remember no beggars In fact though I saw poverty up close at a flea market in Tel Aviv I did not come across any panhandlers There is no street just a large area to mull about in and take photographs while waiting your turn to enter the enclosed wall area I don't so much remember seeing houses just the rooftops and walls of buildings as we left that area and continued our tour One building with a barbed wire rooftop sectioning off the Arab uarter and one with a wall containing bullet holes The sun did blaze with a dry heat But to me it held recent destruction and eternal diversity When I entered the Wailing Wall area I decided not to walk up to it but to sit on a bench against the back wall to observe Seated beside me was a 70ish woman praying in English I wasn't paying close attention to her prayers until I realized that she prayed for a woman she unable to visit Historically this seemed logical to me; that she was separated in some way from a loved one But then she said every time I try to get close to her they try to shoot my eyes out with laser beams It took some restraint to not yank my head around and say Excuse me Say what But in the same instant I could only sadly wonder what sort of traumas this woman may have suffered in her life Well that's not what this book is about at all At the wall the narrator meets a man whose story takes up the rest of the book Singer's storytelling is so convincing it's hard believe the viewpoints held within the man's tale do not mirror Singer's own philosophies I almost skipped the author's note at the end of the book but being a good little reader today I read it I am chastized This is fiction And sometimes fiction needs a disclaimer such asthe opinions expressed in these pages are not necessarily those held by the author and should not be used against himBut I still have a rub Sadly it's dated This book was written in the early 1970s The time lest anyone forget of the sexual revolution Free sex Pickups mistresses open relationships sex on airplanes Whoa Wait a minute Meeting a young woman on an airplane and she comes on to you and you get a blanket and try to do it there I dunno So the narrator's life of adultery has ended and he boards a plane and this happens Then he gets to Tel Aviv and the women are still falling all over him He is a self made rich man who survived WWII by roaming places like Russia Now he's running away to become a penitent That's the scenarioMuch of his story relays his struggles of argumentive thought The Devil tries to lure him back to his evil sexual ways and his new found religious self talks him out of it He rants against the society he's escaping and by the end of the book his complete transformation is revealed when he chances upon the woman he met of the plane and they discuss their now divurgent philosophies over tea It's not as shallow or cheesy as I make it sound Singer is too good of a writer He gets inside the man's mind He made me want to scream and throw the book across the room See Brilliant

Escaping the Nazi terror Shapiro went to America where he became a rich businessman and a philandering husband His search for sa. I really like Isaac Singer which is what made this book so disappointing His character here Joseph Shapiro is self righteous judgmental and preachy and lacks the humor and humanity that Singer usually displaysThe book is basically one long pontification Here's one bitter passage of many manyEven in those days someone was being killed in New York every other day and the police never found the perpetrator If he was found the lawyers promptly bailed him out and the court later freed him for lack of evidence If a witness did show up he had to be kept in confinement to protect him from the criminals In America as in Sodom the perpetrator went free and the witness rotted in jail All this was done in the name of liberalism The whole worldly justice system protects the criminal and leaves the actual or potential victim at his mercy Everyone knows this but try talking about it and you're called the worst namesAt one point almost 100 pages into the monologue there's this piece of insight I know what you will say 'Tell the story don't preach'Indeed Que votre moustache pousse comme la broussaille philandering husband His search for sa.
