Overview

This paperback is the film tie-in edition to the much-anticipated major motion picture starring Jeff Goldblum and Willem Dafoe: Adam Resurrected. One of the most powerful works of Holocaust fiction ever written, Adam Resurrected is now a major motion picture starring Jeff Goldblum and Willem Dafoe. 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 vigour 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.

Reviews

* 'Yoram Kaniuk is one of the most innovative, brilliant novelists in the Western World.' The New York Times * 'Of the novelists I have discovered in translation... the three for whom I have the greatest admiration are Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Peter Handke, and Yoram Kaniuk.' Susan Sontag * 'Whether it is due to the originality of his broken style, or the sensitivity of his characters - the men and women imprisoned by their angels and demons - or his implacable lucidity, Kaniuk must be considered one of the great writers of our time.' Le Monde
