Praise

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

“Brilliant… Universal in its scope and examination of human longing for a sense of roosting.” —The Jerusalem Post

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

 

Praise for The Blue Mountain
“Passionate, ribald and tender . . . Shalev’s colorful, feisty characters and vibrant prose animate this indelible depiction of the birth of a nation.” —Publishers Weekly
 
“Evocative, even lyrical, with the underlying magic realism adding to the mythic stature of the villagers and their accomplishments.” —Kirkus Reviews
