Synopsis:

"This beautiful and moving fictional narrative deserves our attention. It is the work of a gifted writer."
--Elie Wiesel

A remarkable novel filled with love, adventure, and mystical imagination, set in the year 1800 in Russia, Vienna, Turkey, and the Land of Israel. The author portrays one year in the extraordinary life of the Hasidic master and leader, composer, and storyteller Reb Nachman of Bratzlav--the man who thought he was Messiah.

From Library Journal: Set in the year 1800, Leviant's mythical tale tells the story of Reb Nachman, a fictional great-grandson of the Hasidic mystic Baal Shem Tov. Nachman believes he, himself, could be the Messiah. But his love for a Gentile girl sends him on a pilgrimage to test his calling. In Vienna he becomes a close friend of Beethoven, mixing music and mysticism. Later he goes to Turkey and ultimately to Jerusalem. His understanding of what the Messiah really is begins to change as he seems to fail in some tests and succeed in others. Ultimately, he returns to his home in Bratzlav, Russia with the wisdom, vision, and self-knowledge that his quest has produced. An engaging fable that is at once amusing, touching, and profoundly thought-provoking. Enjoyable reading. Recommended for public libraries.
