This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.

Samuel Abba is a young angel who has just been expelled from Paradise. As a result of a crafty trick, Samuel has retained his memory of his previous life. The humans around him plead for details of that other realm, but the Paradise of his mischievous stories is far from their expectations: a world of drunken angels, lewd patriarchs and the very same divisions and temptations that shape the human world.

Witty, playful and slyly profound, The Book of Paradise is the only novel by one of the great Yiddish writers. Published here in a lively new translation by Robert Adler Peckerar, it is a comic masterpiece that irreverently blurs the boundaries between ancient and modern and sacred and profane.
