Description - The Way Back by Gavriel Savit
From the author of the acclaimed crossover novel, Anna and the Swallow Man, a stand-alone literary fantasy based on Jewish folk lore and traditions this is a story for fans of Neil Gaiman.
Set in a world where the dead and the living walk side by side - though not all of them know this, The Way Back is literary fantasy at its very best, steeped in Jewish folk lore and tradition, perfect for fans of Neil Gaiman.
If the world of the living were a suit of clothes and the world of the dead the bony flesh beneath, then at each elbow there would be a cemetery gate.
Here the dead rub up against the living world.
Here the living world wears thin.
Yehuda Leib and Bluma have seperate, unexpected meetings with The Dark One- Death. Meetings which push them on journeys far from their homes across the Far Country - the world of the dead . . .
