A haunting and remarkable novel, "Winter Eyes "is a tale of family secrets, silence, relevation-and the hope for healing and change. A spell-binding achievement, "Winter Eyes "richly fulfills the promise "Booklist "saw when it hailed "Dancing on Tisha B'av "as the debut of "a bright new talent in American fiction."
"Raphael's book resembles a piano sonata, a piece he knows so well that his fingers breathed music." --"Los Angeles Times" ."..one of the most affecting, absorbing, and quietly powerful American coming-of-age novels." --"Booklist" "Raphael writes about the legacy of the Holocaust in a way few writers can. About remembering and about what people do to survive the darkness of their own past." --"Sacramento Bee" "Raphael is a writer of vision like Ralph Ellison and James Baldwin." --"Jewish Bulletin (San Francisco)" "Loneliness, separation, desire and the struggle with gay identity are the leitmotifs of Lev Raphael's new novel. What distinguishes ["Winter Eyes"] is Raphael's handling of grand themes, and his ongoing exploration of worlds both Jewish and gay and how they intersect, daring himself and his readers to contemplate wholeness." --"Jenifer Levin, Forward"
