Moving kings : a novel / Joshua Cohen.

Author: Cohen, Joshua, 1980-

Imprint:New York : Random House, [2017]

Note:"Two young Israeli soldiers travel to New York after fighting in the Gaza War and find work as eviction movers. Yoav Tsarkhan and Uri Halifi have just completed their compulsory stint in the Israeli army, fighting in the 2014 Gaza War. In keeping with national tradition, they're entitled to a year of R&R: a gap-year spent abroad. They come to America and begin working for Yoav's distant cousin, David King--a proud American, Republican, Jew, and owner and operator of Moving King Inc., a heavyweight in the Tri-State area's moving and storage industry. Yoav and Uri now must struggle to become reacquainted with civilian life, but it's not easy to move past their militarized selves when their days are spent kicking down doors: Yoav and Uri work as eviction-movers in Brooklyn and Queens, dispossessing delinquent tenants and homeowners who've defaulted on their mortgages. And what starts off as a profitable if eerily familiar job quickly turns violent when they encounter one homeowner who refuses to leave"-- Provided by publisher.
