The Book of the Unknown: Tales of the Thirty-Six

by Jonathon Keats (Random House)


Keat’s engaging book opens with a fictional scholar’s quest to understand the meaning behind a list of names found during the excavation of a German synagogue. The names are based on a group of 36 virtuous people who justify human existence before God. These finely crafted tales pay homage to the rich tradition of Jewish folklore.
