The year is 2015, and 21-year-olds Yoav and Uri have just completed their compulsory military service in the Israel Defense Forces. In keeping with national tradition, they take a year off for rest, recovery, and travel. They come to New York City and begin working for Yoav’s distant cousin, David King-a proud American patriot, Republican, and Jew, and the recently divorced proprietor of King’s Moving Inc., a heavyweight in the Tri-State area’s moving and storage industries. Yoav and Uri now must struggle to become reacquainted with civilian life, but it’s not easy to move beyond their traumatic pasts when their days are spent kicking down doors, working as eviction-movers in the ungentrified corners of the Bronx, Brooklyn,and Queens, throwing out delinquent tenants and seizing their possessions. And what starts off as a profitable if eerily familiar job-‘an Occupation’-quickly turns violent, when they encounter one homeowner seeking revenge. Driven by Cohen’s characteristic intelligence, boundless energy, psychological tension, and humor, MOVING KINGS is a powerful and provocative novel about faith, race, class, and what it means to have a home.
