Part of the Jewish Encounter series As might be expected from this fiercely provocative writer, David Mameta€™s interest in anti-Semitism is not limited to the modern face of an ancient hatred but encompasses as well the ways in which many Jews have themselves internalized that hatred. Using the metaphor of the Wicked Son at the Passover sedera€”the child who asks, a€œWhat does this story mean to you?a€a€”Mamet confronts what he sees as an insidious predilection among some Jews to seek truth and meaning anywherea€”in other religions, in political movements, in mindless entertainmenta€”but in Judaism itself. At the same time, he explores the ways in which the Jewish tradition has long been and still remains the Wicked Son in the eyes of the world. Written with the searing honesty and verbal brilliance that is the hallmark of Mameta€™s work, The Wicked Son is a scathing look at one of the most destructive and tenacious forces in contemporary life, a powerfully thought-provoking and important book.
