Adam Stein is a holocaust survivor, a former circus clown spared the Nazi's gas chambers so that he might entertain thousands of other Jews as they marched to their deaths. He now finds himself the ringleader of a group of patients at an asylum in Israel's Negev desert populated solely by Holocaust survivors.
More brilliant than the doctors and more insane than any of the other patients, Adam struggles wildly to make sense of a world in which the line between sanity and madness has been irreversibly blurred. Full of humanity, pathos, and biting irony, Adam Resurrected offers a vision of a modern hell that devastates even as it inches toward redemption.

"* 'Yoram Kaniuk is one of the most innovative, brilliant novelists in the Western World.' The New York Times * 'Of the novelists I have discovered in translation... the three for whom I have the greatest admiration are Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Peter Handke, and Yoram Kaniuk.' Susan Sontag * 'Whether it is due to the originality of his broken style, or the sensitivity of his characters - the men and women imprisoned by their angels and demons - or his implacable lucidity, Kaniuk must be considered one of the great writers of our time.' Le Monde"From the Author:
Yoram Kaniuk was born in Tel Aviv in 1930 and took part in Israel's War of Independence in 1948. His books have been translated into twenty languages and have earned him the Bialik Prize, the French Prix de Droits de l'Homme, and the Israeli President's Prize.
