Our Jewish Robot Future: A Novel About The Garden Of Eden And The Cyborgian Transformation Of The Human Race
Meet the Haralsons—retired, eccentric, always discontented. Margarita, the post-menopausal narrator, wants a baby, while her heroic husband Alex is obsessed with finding the missing 11th commandment. Perhaps conjured from their obsessions, arrives John Chapman, a Max Headroom type cyborg from the distant future, begging the Haralsons to save his race of Jewish robots from extinction. The result is a mad escapade through time and space to Airets, Earth’s mirror plant. Prepare for the many antics of the libidinous margarita as she does battle with gossips, hypocrites, and her double-dealing electronic progeny.
Amusing and entertaining Our Jewish Robot Future is an alternative, comedic take on human survival and Jewish family relations. (Amazon)

“…A strange adventure with even stranger concepts, Our Jewish Robot Future will prove to be a highly entertaining and very highly recommended read.” —The Midwest Book Review
“Do you remember the Terminator movies? An evil cyborg from the future comes back in time with the mission to kill the woman who would become the mother of the leader of the human resistance movement. In a twist on that theme, Borman creates a Jewish robot of the future who travels back in time to tell Alex and Margarita Haralson that they must convince their adult children to start reproducing in order for their many-times-great-grandchildren to ultimately develop the robots that would travel into space and preserve Judaism…The Haralsons are feisty, likeable characters. The style is light and conversational…” — Sheryl Stahl, Hebrew Union College-JIR (AJL Newsletter)
“Oy vey. Be prepared for the wild ride that is Our Jewish Robot Future. With author Leonard Borman acting like the chief carney, you will be tossed and turned, amused and edified, and in the end, left slightly dizzy.” — Lorna Landvik, author of Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons
“…Leonard Borman has woven an instant classic with venues ranging from the Garden of Eden to the fields of modern fertility science…a brilliantly entertaining, smart, and mindful allegory of faith and existence…Readers won’t nosh on this inspired novel, but wolf it down in one or two helpings.” — Neal Karlen, author of The Story of Yiddish
“Entertaining, creative and unusual…a refreshing spiritual take on the story of human creation…” — Wendy Shanker, author of Are You My Guru?
“Leonard Borman has created that rarest of beings: a madcap sci-fi novel that will appeal equally to talmudic scholars and to what my grandparents would refer to as the goyim. What can I say, it’s the definitive Jewish robot novel of our time! There are robots. There are Jews. There are Jewish robots. What more could you possibly want, you yold?” — Michael Rubens, author of The Sheriff of Yrnameer
“For anyone wishing to take a flight of sci-fi adventure, Leonard Borman’s Our Jewish Robot Future will meet the need. It falls into that literary genre that seeks out the ideal and wished-for land of promise…This novel is not suited for pragmatists but for readers eager to suspend their unbelief.” — Reginald Keith, author of The Malcontents
“Watch out Woody Allen, Leonard Borman is taking over a piece of your Jewish funny guy territory… The reader will enjoy a romp through the universe, which covers the gamut of marital and existential questions, ones we all want to confront but just haven’t dared. The glossary, alone, is worth the price of the book.” — Gay Rubin, editor and founder of Michigan Hot Apples
