Description

Asher Lev is a gifted loner, the artist who painted the sensational Brooklyn Crucifixion. Into it he poured all the anguish and torment a Jew can feel when torn between the faith of his fathers and the calling of his art. Here Asher Lev plunges back into his childhood and recounts the story of love and conflict which dragged him to this crossroads.

Publisher Review

"A novel of finely articulated tragic power. . . . Little short of a work of genius." "--The New York Times Book Review" "Memorable. . . . Profound in its vision of humanity, of religion, and of art.""--The Wall Street Journal" "Such a feeling of freshness, of something brand-new. . . . Attention-holding and ultimately moving." "--The New York Times" "Engrossing and illuminating." "--Miami Herald"
