This item is not available.
In Thomas Mann's ironic and telling style, one of the most dramatic and significant stories in the Hebrew Bible takes on a new and at times, witty meaning. Mann recounts the early life of Moses, his preparations for leading his people out of Egypt, the exodus itself and the incidents at the oasis Kadesh, and the engraving of the stone tables of the law at Sinai. Like Joseph and His Brothers, it represents Mann's art at its bestóboth bold and inspired.
"Beautiful ... one of the best short novels he has written."óNYTBR
