To say maturation to infinity means an evolution beyond who were born to be. Means an assimilation to the sky and its vault. If Cohen would have stuck with the latter style of short, powerful sentences, the novel as a whole would have been more successful. Though the wordplay is artistic, the ideas are what drive the book and keep it interesting. Light from Heaven is filled with characters old and new and with answers to all the questions that Karon fans have asked since the series began nearly a decade ago.

How do you see it in relation to your other books? How do you view Jews, especially American Jews, in the world today, and the state of American-Jewish literature?
The last Jew in the universe. The last Jew on earth will have a portentous name; he is overweight, and was born with a beard and wearing glasses. What else is there to say? Israel is the moon to me, and Europe a cemetery more impressive than even the fair, and fairwaylike, wilds of Union County, off the Garden State Parkway. Home Share Search.
