Review: THE SIXTH LAMENTATION by William Brodrick

Lorri from Jew Wishes reviewed The Sixth Lamentation by William Brodrick earlier this year.  Here’s an excerpt:

What exactly does the title imply? The Biblical Book of Lamentations and its poems describe the fall of Jerusalem and destruction of the Temple, and how individuals cope with love, loss and grief. The addition of a “sixth lamentation”, for me, is an analogy to the Holocaust. It is also a comparison to the characters in the novel, and how they maintained their lives, through superficial presentations of themselves, in order to cope with their crumbled past, during a devastating period of history.
