Product Details

Praise

“A literary jewel of eccentricity seen as an ethical provocation, which created an unforgettable shock at a time when the mental stereotype imposed by the dictatorship was dimly trying to find the first slits for a breakthrough….The writer summons, in an artistic undertaking that is ever vigorous and vibrant, the fundamental questions of existence, the ephemeral and the transcendent stimulating each other in a dynamic exchange of energy, with original and seductive accords of lasting resonance.” —Norman Manea

“A Baal Shem Tov imagined by Sterne.” —Emil Cioran

“A picaresque life of an imagined philosopher who speaks in torrents and trades in absurdity…[Lichter] lives up to what an acolyte of his calls ‘a pedagogy of beguilement’.” —Kirkus Reviews
