The Book of Jeremiah is a recommended read in Howard Freedman's Off the Shelf column in The Jewish News of Northern California.
I especially liked these lines: "Zuckerman, a U.S.-born writer now living in Israel, seeks to elevate the lives of everyday people. Jeremiah is not the sort that one would expect to be at the center of a literary work, and that’s part of the book’s charm. In fact, it got me thinking about how I’d envision the book of my own life. Some of us may have lives like plot-driven novels, but I suspect that most of us are a collection of stories."
