Praise for Beginnings

“These essays bring a novelist’s insight to the analysis of biblical characters.” —Jewish Review of Books

“Shalev puts his fine storytelling skills to work.” —Booklist

“Shalev is an author of great sophistication whose enthusiasm is contagious. He has an eye for detail, a thirst for making implied connections explicit and a wonderful habit of fully imagining the potent drama narrated.” —The Forward

Praise for A Pigeon and a Boy
“Shalev creates a world that has the richness of invention and the obsessiveness of dreams.” —The New York Times Book Review

“An exquisite creation, a work of quiet language that needs no shouting to attain its impact.” —Chicago Jewish Star


Praise for The Blue Mountain
