Reviews

Dara Horn's fourth, and best.... [A] humane, erudite novel.
Horn moves seamlessly back and forth in time.
A work marked by brilliant conceits and clever plotting.
Horn is embracing her own, livelier brand of Jewish history, embodied in the joys of discovering-and creating-the past anew.
Readers will be taken in by this literary thriller's fast-paced plot and complicated but well-imaged characters. A sure bet.
Wondrous...a richly layered novel.... Horn has magically summoned the wisdom of the ages to address a most contemporary dilemma...riveting and suspenseful.... A novelist at the height of her powers.--Andrew Ferman
[An] intense, multilayered story... Horn's writing comes from a place of deep knowledge...--Jami Attenberg
A Guide for the Perplexed is a richly layered book that leaves a reader...grateful and impressed.
