Publisher's Summary

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 20th century with such daring originality.

“Startlingly original.... Recalls the dark, hallucinatory world of Jerzy Kosinski’s The Painted Bird while at the same time surpassing it.” (The Washington Post)
"Brilliant ... Astonishing.” (The Boston Globe)
