9780316077583: Mr. Rosenblum Dreams in English: A Novel

At the outset of World War II, Jack Rosenblum, his wife Sadie, and their baby daughter escape Berlin, bound for London. They are greeted with a pamphlet instructing immigrants how to act like "the English." Jack acquires Saville Row suits and a Jaguar. He buys his marmalade from Fortnum & Mason and learns to list the entire British monarchy back to 913 A.D. He never speaks German, apart from the occasional curse. But the one key item that would make him feel fully British -membership in a golf club-remains elusive. In post-war England, no golf club will admit a Rosenblum. Jack hatches a wild idea: he'll build his own.

It's an obsession Sadie does not share, particularly when Jack relocates them to a thatched roof cottage in Dorset to embark on his project. She doesn't want to forget who they are or where they come from. She wants to bake the cakes she used to serve to friends in the old country and reminisce. Now she's stuck in an inhospitable landscape filled with unwelcoming people, watching their bank account shrink as Jack pursues his quixotic dream.

In her tender, sweetly comic debut, Natasha Solomons tells the captivating love story of a couple making a new life-and their wildest dreams-come true.

About the Author:

Natasha Solomons is a screenwriter who lives in Dorset, England. Mr Rosenblum Dreams in English is her first novel and was inspired in part by her childhood spent at the cottage her own grandparents bought with restitution money from Germany. The recipes in the novel are from her grandmother's ancient cookbook. Solomons' most recent novel is the New York Times bestseller The House at Tyneford.

From AudioFile:

When Jack Rosenblum escapes from Nazi Germany to England with his wife and daughter, he dreams of a new life in which their Jewish identity will finally be accepted. Using the guidelines in a pamphlet for refugees, Jack tries desperately to learn the mores of the English, but he encounters mixed feelings from his wife regarding his efforts as she struggles to let go of their old life and come to terms with their new one. Narrating with meticulous care, James Adams depicts Jack's difficulties as he manages to become a successful businessman in England. After this achievement, Jack focuses on designing and constructing an English golf course in Dorset, and, with reluctant assistance from the locals, he manages to achieve his dream. Despite his successes, however, there are still those who will never accept him as a proper Englishman. In the end, Jack finds that it's his truest friends and loving family he values most.
