Publisher's Summary

The crowning achievement of one of Israel's literary masters, Adam Resurrected remains one of the most powerful works of Holocaust fiction ever written. A former circus clown who was spared the gas chamber so that he might entertain thousands of other Jews as they marched to their deaths, Adam is now the ringleader at an asylum populated solely by Holocaust survivors. Alternately more brilliant than the doctors and more insane than any of the patients, Adam struggles wildly to make sense of a world in which the line between sanity and madness has been irreversibly blurred.
With the biting irony of Catch-22, the intellectual vigor of Saul Bellow, and the pathos and humanity that are Kaniuk's hallmarks, Adam Resurrected offers a vision of a modern hell that devastates even as it inches toward redemption.

Critic Reviews

"A masterpiece of inventiveness, compassion, and stylistic virtuosity." (Jewish Spectator)
"Yoram Kaniuk is one of the most innovative, brilliant novelists in the Western World." (New York Times)
"Whether it is due to the originality of his broken style, or the sensitivity of his characters, or his implacable lucidity, Kaniuk must be considered one of the great writers of our time." (Le Monde)

Very, very slow

I was really interested in reading this translation from the Hebrew but I was not able to go beyond the first hour, sorry ...
