Author Essay

My Name Is Asher Lev is an amazing account of a Jewish boy’s development into an artist, much to the displeasure of his religious family.  The sequel, The Gift of Asher Lev, leaves one in even more astonishment as the climax of the story stretches and challenges one’s reason and faith.

-Jocelyn Schmidt, Ballantine National Sales Coordinator
