A mind-blowing, virtuosic, genre-busting classic Canadian novel by a master of language and literary forms. It encompasses two-thousand years of history and cultural development, and in less than 200 pages presents a modern reenactment of the Israelite journey in the Torah, and updates rabbinical commentary through a multiplicity of genres including poetry, essay, correspondence, a play, and liturgy. This novel was post-modernist before the term was invented. One of the twentieth century's great novels.
