Ruchama King Feuerman’s In the Courtyard of the Kabbalist was first published as an e-book in September 2013 as part of the New York Review of Books literary series.
Feuerman’s thrilling tale of courtship, mysticism and a clash between cultures drew international acclaim, was selected as a National Jewish Book Awards Finalist by the Jewish Book Council, and was deemed “The best novel I’ve read all year” by Barton Swaim at The Wall Street Journal.
Now, due to its success as an e-book, NYRB is pleased to announce the first print publication of In the Courtyard of the Kabbalist. Immigrants and natives, Muslims and Jews, prophets and lost souls fill the pages of Feuerman’s novel, which paints a vivid and enchanting portrait of modern Jerusalem.
Feuerman discusses her novel with Brooklyn author Beth Bosworth, whose most recent book is The Source of Life and Other Stories.
