Description

“Memorable…A book profound in its vision of humanity, of religion, and of art.”
THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
Here is the original, deeply moving story of Asher Lev, the religious boy with an overwhelming need to draw, to paint, to render the world he knows and the pain he feels, on canvas for everyone to see. A loner, Asher has an extroardinary God-given gift that possesses a spirit all its own. It is this force that must learn to master without shaming his people or relinquishing any part of his deeply felt Judaism. It will not be easy for him, but he knows, too, that even if it is impossible, it must be done….
“A novel of finely articulated tragic power…Little short of a work of genius.”
THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
