Asher Lev is the artist who painted the sensational 'Brooklyn Crucifixion.' Into it her poured all the anguish and torment a Jew can feel when torn between the faith of his fathers and the calling of his art. Here Asher Lev plunges back into his childhood and recounts the story of love and conflict which dragged him to this crossroads.

Profound in its vision of humanity, of religion, and of art.""--The Wall Street Journal""Such a feeling of freshness, of something brand-new. . . . Attention-holding and ultimately moving." "--The New York Times""Engrossing and illuminating." "--Miami Herald"
