“Undoubtedly the funniest book I’ve ever read.” –Jack Benny

“The tempo here is the best of Salinger, Gover, and whoever wrote The Graduate. It’s a tasteless novel. Read it.” –National Underground Review

“Robert Klane is one of the most hilariously bawdy authors since Joseph Heller made ribald fun of the Army in Catch-22.” –Jim Bishop, Winston-Salem Journal-Sentinel

The only thing Nemiroff hates more than being Jewish is other people, especially children, which is unfortunate for them because at Camp Winituck, “kill or be killed” best sums up the philosophy governing the interactions between himself and the summer campers he’s in charge of. Nemiroff’s relationship with his parents isn’t much better. Following his declaration that he was no longer Jewish, his parents no longer allowed him to refer to them as Mom and Dad, insisting he instead address them as Mr. and Mrs. Nemiroff. When they eventually run away from home, they leave Nemiroff a note warning him not to sell anything.

Meanwhile, obsessed with the opposite sex and wondering if he will ever lose his virginity, Nemiroff dreams of meeting the woman he would someday marry. She would be blond, blue-eyed, and gentile. But when his dream girl, Miss Booe, confesses that she’s attracted to him because he is Jewish, Nemiroff knows he has to get Jewish and fast, beginning with an emergency bar mitzvah performed by Rabbi Rosenberg—for a price. In the end, Nemiroff’s dream is realized . . . along with his greatest fear.

The antitastemakers at ANTIBOOKCLUB are proud to present the first-ever ebook edition of The Horse Is Dead, the long out-of-print tasteless novel from 1968 that marked the debut of Robert Klane, whose darkly twisted imagination would go on to bring the world Where’s Poppa? and Weekend at Bernie’s.
