In his personal meditation on the relationship between the ancient, continuing tradition of the Talmud and the expanding world of the Internet Jonathan Rosen blends memoir, history and literary reflection. In the loose, associative logic and the vastness of each, he discovers not merely the disruption of a broken world but a kind of disjointed harmony. In the same way that the Talmud helped Jews survive after the destruction of the Temple by making Jewish culture portable and personal, the all-inclusive Internet serves a world that is both more uprooted and more connected than before.
