An author’s mum has attempted to find him love in a virtual world.
Writing on Twitter, Menachem Kaiser shared a comment his mother Judy wrote during a Zoom book talk he ran, derailing the conversation from his book to his love life.
He has subsequently revealed he has received date offers following her intervention.
She said: “I don’t have a question, but I do have the answer to the question that many of you may be wondering about: Yes - he’s single!”
The book Kaiser was talking about is Plunder, a memoir about reclaiming his family’s property that was seized by the Nazis during WW2. He has also published fiction and non-fiction in Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic, Vogue and more.
But his mother had other things on her mind and – though she distracted people from the subject matter – the comment may have helped raise his profile, as it has now had some 97,000 likes on Twitter.
