Content descriptions

General Note: Electronic book.
Summary, etc.: When Fanny Keismann turns ten, her father, Grodnoâs ritual slaughterer, gives her a knife, and she soon develops a talent for her fatherâs trade. But in nineteenth-century Russia, ritual slaughter does not befit a wife and mother, so when it comes time to marry and raise a family, Fanny abandons her work and devotes herself to raising her five children.When Fannyâs older sisterâs husband disappears, Fanny leaves her own family and sets out for the great city of Minsk in search of her wayward brother-in-law, armed with her old knife and accompanied by Zizek Bershov, who is either a sly rogue or an idiot. Fannyâs mission to help her sister turns into a misadventure that threatens the foundations of the Russian Empire. What began as a family matter in Motol, a peripheral Jewish settlement, breaks the bounds of the shtetl, pits the police against the Czarâs army, and upsets the political and social order they all live in.
