In my view, it firmly places the author on the same level as Kafka.—Michael Disend, author of Stomping the GoyimThe idea that there are multiple heavens, right ones and wrong ones, white ones and black ones, is pushed to its fantastical limits by Brooklyn writer Joshua Cohen in his dream-world novel of the afterlife. . . . Heaven is a challenging but rewarding read on thematic and formal levels.—The Brooklyn RailA breathless flight of controlled delirium, an exquisitely blasphemous tour of an afterlife where earths dominion, in all its terror and glory, trumps the miraculous and overturns the world to come. . . . Its a brave book that should earn its young author the readers profound and enduring admiration.—Steve Stern, author of The Frozen RabbiWhen a ten-year-old Jewish boy is exploded on a Jerusalem street by a ten-year-old Palestinian boy, he wakes up in a heaven no one in his tradition prepared him for, a heaven of others. Joshua Cohens novel stands at the crossroads of a conflicted city and wordplay that both celebrates and dismantles tradition.
