His books have been translated to great acclaim into more than twenty languages and have earned him the Bialik Prize, the French Prix de Droits de l'Homme, and the Israeli President's Prize.

Reviews

"A rich, demanding, life-affirming masterpiece . . . Not to be missed."
"Wildly accomplished . . . Kaniuk writes like a European master of an earlier age . . . [and] has rightly been compared with Borges and Marquez as much as with James Joyce. . . . Kaniuk has written a Bible." -- Joshua Cohen
"A true work of art . . . First published more than twenty years ago and newly translated into English, the novel's preoccupations are only more timely today: the exploitation of catastrophe and the deceptiveness of art." -- Dara Horn
