Book Description
Foreskin`s Lament reveals Auslander`s upbringing in a strict, socially isolated Orthodox community, and recounts his rebellion and efforts to make a new life apart from it. He remembers his youthful attempt to win the `blessing bee` , his exile to reform school in Israel after he was caught shoplifting a cassette tape of West Side Story, and his twenty-five-mile hike to watch the New York Rangers play in Madison Square Garden without his violating the Sabbath. Throughtout, Auslander struggles to understand God and His complicated, often contradictory laws. He tries to negotiate with God and His representatives a day of sin-free living for a day of indulgence; a blessing for each profanity. But ultimately Auslander settles for a ceasefire, a stand-off with God, and accepts the very slim hope that his newborn son might live free of guilt, doubt and struggle.
