Aryeh Lev Stollman's first novel, The Far Euphrates, was hailed as "radiant" and "remarkable" by The New York Times Book Review. The Boston Globe called his second novel, The Illuminated Soul, "profound". But Stollman's career began with stories that have appeared in leading literary journals, including American Short Fiction, The Yale Review, The Southwest Review, Tikkun, and Story magazine. Collected here, they address the themes he has grappled with so memorably in his novels: "the pull of the past over the present and the profound effects that one person can have on another" (San Francisco Chronicle); the aftershocks of the Holocaust; the convergence of science, the imagination, and the spiritual realm; and the way art can shape our humanity. In these stories, Stollman continues to blend the everyday with the mystical, the mundane with the extraordinary, and the waking world with the world of dreams.
