"Yoram Kaniuk is one of the most innovative, brilliant novelists in the Western World."

- Susan Sontag

"A masterpiece of inventiveness, compassion, and stylistic virtuosity."
- Jewish Spectator

Amazon.com review:

“ADAM RESURRECTED is the crowning achievement of one of Israel's literary masters and remains one of the most powerful works of Holocaust fiction ever written. Adam Stein, 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, is now the ringleader at an asylum in the Negev desert 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 has been irreversibly blurred between sanity and madness. 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.”
