Not just a first novel but a cultural event?a wedding of secular and religious forms of literature?In the Image neither lives in the past nor seeks to escape it, but rather assimilates it, in the best sense of the word, honoring what is lost and finding, among the lost things, the treasures that can renew the present. Reading group guide included.
Annotation:
Two stories converge in this novel, that of a young woman named Leora, and the life of the grandfather of a friend, in an exploration of past and present, tradition and change.
