A major literary debut, an epic tale of love, failure, and unexpected faith set in New York, Amsterdam, and Las Vegas
The modern-day Jonah at the center of Joshua Max Feldman's brilliantly conceived retelling of the Book of Jonah is a young Manhattan lawyer named Jonah Jacobstein. He's a lucky man: healthy and handsome, with two beautiful women ready to spend the rest of their lives with him and an enormously successful career that gets more promising by the minute. He's celebrating a deal that will surely make him partner when a bizarre, unexpected biblical vision at a party changes everything. Hard as he tries to forget what he saw, this disturbing sign is only the first of many Jonah will witness, and before long his life is unrecognizable. Though this perhaps divine intervention will be responsible for more than one irreversible loss in Jonah's life, it will also cross his path with that of Judith Bulbrook, an intense, breathtakingly intelligent woman who's no stranger to loss herself. As this funny and bold novel moves to Amsterdam and then Las Vegas, Feldman examines the way we live now while asking an age-old question: How do you know if you're chosen?
What a winner
This novel is introspective, fun. It's a pageturner in the best sense and one you'll find yourself recommending to friends. The highest of praise to the author and his Vision!
This book will have you on the edge of your seat and make you question every Why? and What If? you have ever wondered and then it'll bring you back to a place where those questions have an answer that only you can find for yourself.
I found the story compelling, the descriptions gripping, and the style of writing appealing, but I confess that I really don't understand what it was about. I feel as confused as the characters. Finishing it leaves me feeling perplexed.
