Reviews

“Dr. Nouryeh has devoted himself to his subject – the story of Joseph in its various manifestations – assiduously, with scholarly care and, tremendous patience… Dr.Nouryeh had many influences among them Freud, Nietzsche, Robert Alter, Derrida and Rabbi Buron L. Visotzky…Throughout this fascinating book, Dr. Nouryeh seeks to understand not only the art and meaning of the various versions of the Joseph story but the meaning of life itself.”
