Painter-storyteller Ari’s novel is a true original, with roots in Jewish mysticism and Yiddish folklore … extravagant, charming, and deeply serious in its matter-of-fact mingling of moral history, prophecy and magic.— Kirkus Reviews

A Chagall painting brought to life, the novel traces the episodic journey of an orphaned 18th-century cobbler in search of the legendary Jewish rabbi and miracle worker, the Baal Shem Tov.

I just loved this novel for the beauty of the writing and the edginess of its humor. I've never before read anything like it. And I read quite a lot.
