At the center of A Blessing on the Moon is Chaim Skibelski. Death is merely the beginning of Chaim’s troubles. In the opening pages, he is shot along with the other Jews of his small Polish village. But instead of resting peacefully in the World to Come, Chaim, for reasons unclear to him, is left to wander the earth, accompanied by his rabbi, who has taken the form of a talking crow. Chaim’s afterlife journey is filled with extraordinary encounters whose consequences are far greater than he realizes.

Not since Art Spiegelman’s Maus has a work so powerfully evoked one of the darkest moments of the twentieth century with such daring originality.

    " Jaw dropping--the afterlife of a Jewish village exterminated by the Nazis in occupied Poland. Chagall between hard covers. "

    " This is one of my favorite books of all time - writing style, content, all. I have no problem with "Holocaust art" and especially fiction writing. This is heart-breakingly beautiful. Christine - read it!!! "
