By Joshua Cohen
Dalkey Archive Press, £14.99
Like many of the best young Jewish-American writers, Joshua Cohen lives in Brooklyn. Witz - sub-titled The Story of the Last Jew on Earth- is his fifth book and without doubt the longest and most difficult.
There are three problems with it that, leaving aside the excessive length, are likely to hobble your progress to the last of its 800-plus pages.
