|The vibrant descriptions are based on a subtle interspersing of Jewish texts, bringing together midrash (allegory) and rabbinic quotes, Biblical verses, liturgical expressions, sleights of familiar phrases and passages... It is the interplay of the familiar and the ought-to-be-familiar, the modern and the ancient, the parent and the child, the choice and the chance, the real and the fantastic, that give this novel its power and its fascination.
A Jewish-style Da Vinci Code saga... Rich in fascinating detail, typical wit and humor.
