From the Inside Flap:

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.

"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

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

"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
