When Benjamin Ziskind recognizes a Chagall hanging in a museum as having once hung in his family home, he decides to steal it back. Soon a beautiful woman who works for the museum is knocking at his door demanding its return. This stylistic novel effortlessly reveals the painting's provenance through the history of Benjamin's family, from Soviet Russia to the suburbs of New Jersey to the caves of Vietnam. It's at once a lament for and a celebration of the resilient Jewish people during a calamitous century. (BH)
