His heavily autobiographical, strikingly literary, and polyphonic novels and lyrical essays are widely read by a devoted public in France, yet have been largely ignored by academia." "In the first English-language study of this profound and profoundly misunderstood writer, Jack I. Abecassis traces the recurrent themes of Cohen's works. He reveals the dissonant fractures marking Cohen as a modernist, and analyzes the resistance to his work as a symptom of the will not to understand Cohen's main theme: "the catastrophe of being Jewish.""" ;
