Summary:
Solomon Kugel wishes for nothing more than to be nowhere, to be in a place with no past, no history, no wars, no genocides. The rural town of Stockton, New York, is famous for nothing: which is exactly why Kugel decided to move his family there. To begin again. To start anew. But it isn't quite working out that way.
