Reviews

Brilliantly recasts an ancient story for our weird, troubled (but beautiful) times...Jacob Bacharach is a true original.--Edan Lepucki, author of California
Shot through with brutal, crystalline sentences...Bacharach's combination of intellectual heft, biting wit, and lyrical intensity--his ability to both analyze our world and beautifully satirize it--is unmatched.--Kerry Howley, author of Thrown
The question at the heart of this story is a serious one: Modern-day prophets, how are we to see them? Must they be sane? Must they be upstanding in their own lives? Or can they be mad, crooked, hubristic liars, unfaithful husbands, self-absorbed and inattentive parents and still bear urgent messages we do well to heed? . . . . [Bacharach's] energetic prose [is] sure-footed and boldly effervescent. . . . The author's ear for the sidesplitting verbal tics of his quirky and deliciously offbeat characters makes this book well worth the read.--Shulem Deen
