A painting by Marc Chagall is stolen from a museum, and the unlikely thief is Benjamin Ziskind, a 30-year-old quiz-show writer. The author interweaves a real art heist, history, biography, theology, and Yiddish literature in a novel that opens the door to "the world to come"--the world created by one's actions right now.
