Review:

"The idea that there are multiple heavens, right ones and wrong ones, white ones and black ones, is pushed to its fantastical limits by Brooklyn writer Joshua Cohen in his dream-world novel of the afterlife.... Heaven is a challenging but rewarding read on thematic and formal levels." --Brooklyn Rail, Feb. 2008

"Joshua Cohen has created a visionary novel that is terrifying and heartbreaking and humbling in its luminous brilliance. In my view, it firmly places the author on the same level as Kafka." --Michael Disend, author of Stomping the Goyim

"A breathless flight of controlled delirium, an exquisitely blasphemous tour of an afterlife where earth's dominion, in all its terror and glory, trumps the miraculous and overturns the world to come... It's a brave book that should earn its young author the reader's profound and enduring admiration." --Steve Stern, author of The Angel of Forgetfulness
