"[A]n ambitious first novel of challenging design....In essence, the author simply embellishes a mundane core story with lots of modernist gestures, a hodgepodge of quotation and imagination...."
From the Publisher
Annotation The story of a diamond merchant in New York is told not only by himself but by a chorus of voices, including his friends and family plus Kafka, Proust, Chief Crazy Horse, Vermeer, and other unexpected characters. The book is also illustrated, in a collage of art and text that the author has based on the Talmud.
Editors Note Modeled after the Talmud, this uniquely constructed novel introduces Abraham Tal, a New York diamond merchant who spends his days counseling friends and neighbors from his shop. A first novel.
