Editorial Reviews


A fine piece of writing. -- Raymond Federman

Cohen is probably the most serious non-Czech writer to come out of Prague in recent years. -- Think again, December 2005

Cohen writes with a purpose and clarity that belies his youth, but with all the ferocious energy of inexperience. -- Review of Contemporary Fiction

I think it is an amazing book. -- Tsipi Keller, author of Jackpot

The blasphemous Hegelian synthesis Cohen's continually undertaking puts the balm of his irrepressible lyricism on the ancestral wound. -- Village Voice, January 2006

These are formidable stories indeed--demanding full attention every sentence. -- Michael Disend, author of Stomping the Goyim

From the Author

Because we shouldn't believe in nations, because we have forsaken our traditions or our traditions have forsaken us, because only individuals matter to those who happen to be one ... because everyone has their own voice and we're all speaking at once, connected through a disconnect and yet still insisting on our fundamental differences, that we're special, marked by virtue of our sheer existence ... Because of all these paradoxes -- screaming into each other through any ear and enacting a love-death in the gray middle -- how can we truly expect to listen when we want only to be heard? But what is there to say that hasn't already been ignored? -- these are some of the ideas that this book does not address.

Format: Paperback
Well, this reduced me to gibbering incoherence over on amazon.co.uk and I couldn't hack A Heaven of Others either, but Cohen's prose poems are the best thing in Starcherone's 30 under 30 so do I dare give Witz a punt?

I did. He's bidding to be the Jewish James Joyce. Do we need two?
