Beschreibung

A major literary debut, an epic tale of love, failure, and unexpected faith set in New York, Amsterdam, and Las Vegas.
The modern-day Jonah at the center of Joshua Max Feldman's brilliantly conceived retelling of the book of Jonah is a young Manhattan lawyer named Jonah Jacobstein. He's a lucky man: healthy and handsome, with two beautiful women ready to spend the rest of their lives with him and an enormously successful career that gets more promising by the minute. He's celebrating a deal that will surely make him partner when a bizarre, unexpected biblical vision at a party changes everything. Hard as he tries to forget what he saw, this disturbing sign is only the first of many Jonah will witness, and before long his life is unrecognizable. Though this perhaps divine intervention will be responsible for more than one irreversible loss in Jonah's life, it will also cross his path with that of Judith Bulbrook, an intense, breathtakingly intelligent woman who's no stranger to loss herself.
As this funny and bold audiobook moves to Amsterdam and then Las Vegas, Feldman examines the way we live now while asking an age-old question: How do you know if you're chosen?

Kritikerstimmen

"Feldman's expansive tale offers an invigorating, timeless exploration of existential crises within a contemporary world." (Booklist)
"Feldman is clever in his use of the Jonah story, and his novel is of the same strange and enigmatic quality as the original." (Kirkus Reviews)
"David Pittu is one of those expert narrators who disappear into a story. You don't hear him interpreting it, or commenting on it; he becomes part of it.... Pittu puts you inside Jonah, makes you feel what he feels.... a bravura performance." (AudioFile)
