Andrew P. Cohen, a professor of comparative culture at New York University, is at the zenith of his life. But the manicured surface of his world begins to crack when he is visited by a series of strange and inexplicable visions - forcing him to question all his beliefs. Ruby Namdar's brilliant novel embraces the themes of the American Jewish literary canon as it captures the privilege and pedantry of New York intellectual life.
