A Heaven of Others book. I think this is what Joshua Cohen is ultimately unraveling in his first novel. This was a very bizarre read, and it has some trippy picture for you folks who like pictures in books. Illustrated by Michael Hafftka. I thought Cohen did a superb job in looking at Heaven through the eyes of 10 year old boy, if you can really look at Heaven. I could be wrong, but I gathered that Heaven is all together for everyone. Through time, through dimensions and their lands, a heaven What is Heaven like?

"Joshua Cohen has created a visionary novel that is terrifying and heartbreaking and humbling in its luminous brilliance. In my view, it firmly places the author on the same level as Kafka."—Michael Disend, author of Stomping the Goyim

Heaven is a challenging but rewarding read on thematic and formal levels."—The Brooklyn Rail

"A breathless flight of controlled delirium, an exquisitely blasphemous tour of an afterlife where earth's dominion, in all its terror and glory, trumps the miraculous and overturns the world to come. . . . It's a brave book that should earn its young author the reader's profound and enduring admiration."—Steve Stern, author of The Frozen Rabbi
