Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A small group of Jews weave a web of intrigue and fantasy around a book reviewer's contention that he is the son of Borus Schultz, the legendary Polish writer killed by the Nazis before his magnum opus, THE MESSIAH, could be brought to light.

Review:

"Ozick's new novel is a beautifully written, moving, and sometimes funny tale of a man so in love with literature that he imagines himself the lost son of a Polish writer, Bruno Schulz, who was murdered by the Nazis. Lars Andemening is a Swedish book reviewer laboring in obscurity, living in a world of books and private obsession. The fantastic conceit of the novel and its European setting are wonderfully realized. Ozick manages to invest what could have been a bleak tale of a narrow life with the power of the fantasy that informs that life." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
