A reason to celebrate...Hoffmann shows himself to be an artist of the profoundly fantastic. — Hadassah Magazine

Hoffmann writes in a language of miracles. — American Book Review
These bits and pieces of polished writing—like small, well-crafted gems—form a mosaic and give one a full portrait. — Robert Leiter (Jewish Exponent)
A wise and delicate book. — Yediot Aharonot
